It serves no practical purpose, but it sure looks cool.

ave you ever thought to yourself, “Why don’t they make light bulbs out of wood?” Of course you haven’t. No one would, except maybe a really bored carpenter who just ingested a combination of paint thinner and LSD. Or a designer with a really creative imagination. Ryosuke Fukusada is a Japanese designer working in Milan, and it was his brilliant imagination that led to this incredible and bizarre creation.
If you want to learn more about the thinking behind this project, you could go to the designer’s website, but unfortunately the text seems to have been translated using Babelfish. Here’s how Fukusada explains the project:
“This lamp is created to achieve the mix of modern design and traditional craft technique. It has an impression as a solid wood radiate light. In fact, the LED device is wrapped by wooden shell, which is chipped until minimum thickness with Japanese ‘ROKURO’ technique. The socket is done by aluminum, which suits wood with modern impression.”
But enough about whatever that means, it’s all about how it looks, so check out the pictures below.
