The forms and materials of furniture can evoke memories through the senses of sight, touch and even sound. Combining soothing images of nature with the element of luminescence, American designer David Moore of PSCraftworks creates functional and evocative pieces, using wood that has been recycled from various film sets in Los Angeles.
Moore describes the humble origins of his lovely lighting pieces:
The lamps utilize reclaimed lumber salvaged from props and sets used in the Los Angeles film and television industry. The designs incorporate back lit photographs, printed using a special back lit film. All photos were lensed by David on his travels to deserts, fire ravaged mountains and Pacific NW rain forests.
We love the original shapes of these lamps, which seem like simplified, wooden versions of a microfiche.
Here are some close-ups of Moore's own photography, used in these striking pieces. These carefully composed images help to make the furniture stand out, and to tell a more compelling story.
This little commode is especially endearing; when lit up, it serves both as storage and as lighting in the room.
