Could this be the LINK pendants finest moment?

We’ve had a few emails from devoted LZF fans, asking us why our LINK pendants feature in so many project we are involved with? And looking back through our extensive portfolio, the answer is;  it’s all part of a plot for the LINK pendant to take over the planet (oh no, we have said too much).

We have long held aspirations of world domination. This is why we have enlisted the  designer, Ray Power (notice the surname?) to come up with a handmade wood lamps that no sane human being could resist. The result was the LINK, a lamp so fiendishly beautiful that grown men have been known to weep at its presence.

Created from cleverly stacked Mobius strips of wood veneer, the LINK weaves its magic by captivating the eye of the beholder. And to make sure that he lured as many people into his devilish aesthetic trap as possible, he not only offered the LINK as a suspension lamp, Mr Power went ahead and turned it into a floor lamp as well. And he gave people the option of 9 different wood veneer finishes. Very cruel, Mr Power. Very cruel.

LZF´s latest act of covert colonialism has been to install the LINK in the heartland of world computing, venture capitalists and dodgy start-ups: Silicon Valley.

The Shou Sugi Ban House in Los Gatos, California was remodelled by Schwartz and Architecture and although we are loathe to play favourites, this could be the LINK’s finest moment yet. Perched high above Silicon Valley and with views to die for, the domestic revamp was heavily inspired by images and textures from the site; namely boulders, bark and leaves.

The architects created a two-storey addition and clad it in traditional Shou Sugi Ban burnt wood siding, anchoring home and site. The use of natural textures and materials was continued inside, and this is where LZF came to the fore, providing a LINK suspension lamp for the main bedroom. Finished in cherry wood, the LINK ties all of the elements together with its veneer strips of eternally flowing space and light.

Our mission is almost complete Mr Power.
