Dougong Light Fixture

  • This wall mount light fixture is inspired by Dougong(斗拱),a traditional Chinese architectural element consisted of interlocking wooden brackets. Firstly designed in Rhinoceros, it is made of layers of laser-cut Baltic birch plywood. Assembled in a mortise-and-tenon fashion, it utilizes LED as its light source, while all the wiring, switches, and batteries are hidden within the wooden frames.
