The side panels of these lamps are thin slices of end grain from Totara trees once infected with a common virus that creates holes in the water transport system of the wood. The virus dies when the tree dies so degradation of the wood stops. Beautiful patterns are created when using the slices as a light diffuser/filter and is similar to looking at the xylem of a plant through a microscope. Utilising specific joints the frame holds itself together, with glue only needed for finishing and aesthetics.
