Walnut Lamp

[gfc – LFwgr – 16×26]:

A proper dining area needs proper lighting. In this case, that lighting comes from a rectangle made of walnut, with proportions of (nearly) 1:1.618, and twelve lightbulbs. The placement of the lights is based on the Golden Spiral.

So there are two identical spirals, but one is rotated 180deg – i.e. the lamp has 2-fold rotational symetery. The relative length of the cords is based on where they appear in the sequence, but the actual measured lengths are just eyeballed to look nice (not that I didn’t try to calculate something…). The spirals start at the corners with shorter cords, and the cords get longer as the spirals continue towards the center. Timeless as in ancient, and “timeless” (for now) as in mid-century modern. Take your pick.

Cleverly attached to the ceiling with no visible fastener, yet still easy to remove.
