The "Toro" lamp is a versatile lamp inspired in the japanese art of origami, highlighting faceted shapes, as is common with the author's own personal design style. This project required 3 feet of solid pine wood and laser cut sheet metal, bent and welded to obtain the desired design of the lampshade. It is avaliable in two possible colors; glossy black or glossy white. Some details in cork were also included on the base of the steps and inside the lampshade to cool down the temperature in case of using a classic incandescent light bulb. The cable used in this project is a vintage type one and is lined in red fabric with 2 meters of length, connected to an E14 lamp socket.
