From the inspiration of the seed husk, the idea that the ply could be a protective structure for the bulb translated into a segmented skeletal structure that evolved many times throughout the design process allowing light to pass through.
Materials used are 3mm Hoop Pine Plywood. Milk paint was used for the finish. It is non-toxic and contains no petrochemicals or VOC'S. The milk paint has a combination of lime, milk protein, clays and earth pigments.
