monday & the woobia lamp.

happy monday friends! i wanted to share with you this "woobia" wooden floor lamp designed by the polish studio abadoc.

the wood is intentionally left natural, knots and all, sealed only by a varnish or natural oil. the handmade body also contains tiny wood blocks forming different degrees of small squares. abadoc prides itself on its small use of wood, meaning that every little bit is used in the design, if possible, limiting the amount of wood sourced.

i love the very organic bow of a branch shape. the arch of the woobia light conjures up memories of climbing trees as a child (or an adult!), tree swings, shade, just plain comfort feelings. this woobia light is also one of those "wow" pieces you bring into a residential or commercial space. its larger than life design, the textural element of the raw natural wood. the organic shape, its got wow written all over it. enjoy!
