This is fairly Magritte, isn’t it? This is Sculptural Skin, a light fixture/sculture piece by Y-Town and Jamy Yang. The source itself is simple enough, but the shade is of particular attention. Yang’s shade for the Sculptural Skin is made from thin wood veneer – which might seem like a redundant phrase, but the veneer is translucent and natural colored. The fixture appears as if Jamy Yang was so extremely talented with a planer that he was able to pull off one continuous strip and wrap it into a very pretty shade.
The base is simple enough – in one model the base consists of what appears to be a flexible conduit of sorts. A floor model exists, but I was unable to find an image. What do you think?
