The conception of the Lamela started with the material it is made of: 4mm used MDF. This material, considered as industrial waste, was used as a bottom layer for a 3-axis cnc milling machine that cuts different types of plate like material. It has a specific structure on one side that was engraved during multiple milling operations. Because the production company throws out this material every other week we can rely on a constant supply, but off course with a slightly limited character.
Adding light to the unique pattern gives the material so much more value, it was ment to match. That's why we thought this was an opportunity to design a unique product.
