The Twistable Lantern is an operable lamp in the form of a wooden cube. The project considers the properties of wood with respect to the direction
of its grain in order to generate flexible surfaces. Using the method of kerf-folding, slots were laser-cut into plywood pieces to compromise the
material’s flatness, allowing twists of the material in the horizontal direction. The design enables the user to lock the cube in 9 levels, thereby letting out different amounts of light.
