Carbon Fiber Ribbon of Light

Illustration for article titled Carbon Fiber Ribbon of Light

I would have assumed this lamp was aluminum, had designer Marcus Tremonto not explained:


"The complexity of curves and required thinness could not be duplicated in any other material while still maintaining its ability to support itself completely..."

Usually when I picture carbon fiber, I imagine that monotonous, slate-colored slab that's delicately thin but mostly flat—or I picture the Ossur cheetah legs that are curved but only for industrial utility.


I'd never imagined carbon fiber as a ribbon of light. [Contemporist via cribcandy]
