Hazy / Decorative Lamp

Hazy; is a lighting equipment with a warm and timeless pattern through to the unique texture of the rattan. The main form is inspired from the nature. The general structure of the Hazy, which is designed as a lighting equipment, is reminiscent of the leaf form details.

Rattan weaving generally apply to a classical type furniture, but it also adapts to modernized lines perfectly.
Main frame made by turned wood and covered with velvet fabric. This caused softened the detail of rattan texture. Rattan causes filtered to luminary, without losing capacity. Hazy has an elegant flow from the beginning to the top. The color of the velvet coating may vary according to the request.

The Hazy project started with inspiration from basic leaf sketches. First checks were made from these sketch. The main frame was made with wood in the first drawings. Creating different contrast between rattan and frame has added more character to the design. We decided to use velvet fabric in pastel shades to accompany the soft touch of Rattan. And we see that; the main carcase covered with velvety fabric provides integrity.
After that minor corrections were made in the 3DMax, such as dimensional corrections.
Mock up was produced and the accuracy of the design was checked. Hazy creates well-balanced brightly areas owing to its light-transmitting texture.

Hazy is the most popular product among the products I designed recently. In general, all the critics were good. Rattan and wood crafting are familiar for me. I have considerable experience in wood crafting. So that it’s not difficult for me thinking design with wood and other natural materials. This must be the reason for all the good critics.

I just believe that it is necessary to match the right materials and get rid of unnecessary details. When designing I like to be brave and devastating.
