Entry Description

Evidenced in culture and religion, humans tend to expect the next stage of life to be better; many believe in a Second Chance at life. What if we could provide an everyday material—wood—with a Second Chance, altering its appearance and properties to give it a second finish? Wooden Glass is a light fixture comprised of translucent wood, a material rendered using xylem removal processes.
