Design by Christopher Metcalfe.
The Punga lights are inspired by the native palm tree which grows prolifically in the New Zealand rainforest. The trunk, when stripped of its bristle-like bark, reveals a beautiful pattern that is a series of cellular like ovals which replicate imperfectly down the length of the trunk - almost like a natural paisley pattern.
The product utilizes laser cutting and the unique nature of the cutting process. The beam of the laser does not cut in a straight line but is actually a focused triangle. This "quirk" of laser cutting is leveraged in the product design via the creation of dovetail joints which are "perfect" due to the accuracy of the laser and, therefore, do not require adhesive to create a tight and robust fit.
The design and use of the laser cutter results in extremely low waste of the sustainably grown Australian Hoop Pine used to manufacture the Punga lights. Additionally, the product is a kitset and ships extremely efficiently as a flat pack. (Instructions are provided for assembly). The products are built with integrity and respect for the environment and the labor force used to make them.
Note: Photo depicts all three sizes, they are sold as single units.
