Stripe (you know, the linear clock) is going to have a wooden faceplate. I like wood – it looks good, has good mechanical properties and is easy to work with. Yesterday, I had a nice chat with Dana Cannam. He designs beautiful products that employ wood in an innovative manner and his Clamp LED lamp has just gone into production.
After talking to him I slightly changed the design of Stripe:
The wooden faceplate is just over a meter long and has 32 holes for the RGB LEDs. The control box houses the LED controller. I’ll be off to Protospace, the local FabLab, soon to mill the faceplate out of beech and oak. Let me know what you think!
