I believe the mix of design and layout has actually made this light so famous," mentions VoonDipperGenerated from half a sheet of plywood the layering creates a soft diffused straight illumination, as well as a down light. A reduced fuel bulb is a white light and this is softened and made more natural in shade by its representation off the lumber, nearly like an old college incandescent glow.ShelltwoAs its name recommends, the Shelltwo chair, by multi-disciplinary studio VW+BS, was developed by examining just how organic microorganisms- like plants or seashells- build their frameworks layer by layer.
