For this project i intend to make a lamp out of wood and stainless steel. I would like to get a stainless steel sheet or tube to manufacture this out of. This will be the inside structure of the lamp. For the prototype i have a utensil holder which demonstrates how the inner structure will look with a perforated surface.
For the outer structure i would like to get a thin sheet of wood where i will cut the appropriate perforations in to to offset with the perforations in the steel. This wood would then be soaked in water until it is saturated and can be bent into the appropriate radius. I am hoping to find a soft wood to be able to do this. from here i will hopefully fasten the joint with some nice fixtures.
The moving component of this design will be the wood outer shade moving in a circle around the inner metal to change the amount of light which comes out of the lamp. I would like to incorporate a track for this to move on but perhaps a metal base with a lip to contain the outer and inner structures and they will just rotate on the base. This part is the most subject to change in the design.
The following are inspirations for the design.
