I was fascinated by the possibility of having a bright, usable light derived from an unexpected form and material
The Matchstick Light’s simple outer form hides the complexities of its manufacturing. Each light is milled from one solid maple blank. The sticks of maple are comprised of two separate halves, with all components and wiring sealed inside. The light is an exploration of how a CNC mill can expand and enhance the capabilities of the maker; allowing them to create something that would be impossible, or at least unreasonable, to create entirely by hand.
