The Burning Ego serves as an ode to the often-neglected essence of the bough and its relationship with light and life. The design of the lamp arose from a search for balance between the cultivated and the a-symmetric design of Mother Nature. To accentuate the beautiful and muscular forms of the bough, the Shou Sugi Ban technique is applied. This ancient woodworking technique from Japan burns away the soft parts of the wood. By letting the LED follow the original form of the bough and using minimalistic suspension, the Burning Ego floats powerfully through mid air.
