“Urbanoids” is a handmade Floor Lamp / Room Separator made of Plywood and Aluminum. The experimentation with the wood “Lamination” technique and the exploration of organic forms and natural patterns were the starting point for the conception of this artefact. It started as a reflection of thoughts and concerns about the interconnectivity of humankind and nature and eventually it developed into a discussion over the effect of humankind actions on the environment nowadays in urban societies.
“Urbanoids” represents a dynamic axis. The one side depicts the current urban condition with the alienation from nature and its degradation with catastrophic results. Moving on the other side, the piece visualises the need that emerges, for an environmentaly-safe consciousness by following approaches of respecting and exploiting nature.
