For the five-year anniversary, GANTlights has developed this limited edition of the C series fitting. The over 300-year-old oak wood comes from the historic Berlin city palace.
The foundation from Märkische spruce and pine wood, as well as the oak planks, have been the fundament of the castle since 1680 as a royal residence and after its destruction the palace of the republic. At the time of construction the trees were between 100 and 150 years old. The historical wood was recovered during the construction work of the Berlin Humboldforum at the Castle place. The wood lay below the groundwater line for hundreds of years so that it was conserved to extremely hard bog oak. During this time, the tannic acid of oakwood reacted with the iron salts of the groundwater. Through this chemical process, the wood received its individual, partly bluish-black coloration and its individual structure. The thus refined wood was carefully worked up by hand.
The history-rich oak wood, combined with rough concrete, refers to the hometown of GANTlights and creates five characteristic and unmistakable individual pieces with Berlin history. In all lampshades a pictogram of the Berlin city castle was milled and individually marked with 24 karat gold leaf. Each limited edition is handed over with a certificate.
The handmade lampshade comes pre-assembled with a high-quality LED strip, 2 meter black textile cable, wire rope suspension, fastening material and a canopy made of matt steel. Please ensure that your deck construction is sufficiently load-bearing.
