OSB Lights

 

When wood is turned into chipboard (OSB) its value decreases. Chipboard is mainly used for products that are perceived as "low-value" products, both materialistically and aesthetically, such as shipping crates. The guiding idea was to reuse chipboard from - a material that has almost reached the end of its life cycle - in a manner that will upgrade its value and render it usable. 

The design process empathize the material's original characteristics and aesthetic fundamentals. Processing the wood reveals the layers of the chipboard, creating new fascinating textures.
