Okay, so most of us have got the message. Natural materials are beautiful, they have an innate warmth and tactility that man-made just can’t seem to reproduce. But sometimes it does seem a bit heavy, a bit rustic - thick, solid timber, masculine leather, honed rock.

It is exciting to see a deft playfulness in a design utilising natural timber, like the Agatha lamp by LZF Lamps. Here, a thin timber veneer is looped and twisted into a stylish pompom. Delicate, still with all the benefits of real wood, but just that little bit more clever. ufl.co.nz
