Bamboo Light Series, 2018
While designing another piece, the Bamboo Aviator Chair, Zev was using a new technique bending the rigid bamboo boards used in the chair. Zev found that these bent pieces were also ideal to produce housings for wall lights and linear pendants, leading to the inception of the Bamboo Light Series.
