Felled Light is based in East London, every light is handmade with English hardwood trees that are wind felled or part of a forest management programme.
The Japanese aesthetic of Wabi-Sabi is central to our ethos, this is characterised by asymmetry and simplicity, coupled with an appreciation of the integrity of natural objects. The lights are made in a simple manner that compliments the way that nature has marked and shaped the tree. This is important as it reveals the history of the tree’s transformation into its current form, a progression that is usually completely removed or unconsidered in traditional woodworking.
The seasoning process takes a minimum of two years, after that each piece is worked by hand. The lights are fire branded underneath with the Felled Light logo, numbered and sold with a certificate of authenticity. Finally, the wood is treated and oiled to enhance its beauty and to ensure its life is preserved. This combination of care and attention to detail makes Felled Light truly unique and sustainable pieces of design.
