Duncan Meerding is a legally blind furniture and lighting designer from the Australian island state of Tasmania. He uses his unique perspective to create original pieces and is now receiving quite a bit of attention for one item in particular: the Cracked Log Lamp. Meerding’s log lamps emit warm, yellow light for the coziest indoor experience. On his official site, the artist states, “Being legally blind, this vision of light emanating from the peripheries and the highly tactile nature of my work reflect the alternative sensory world within which I design.” He continues, “My work should not merely be seen as something that looks nice, it should remind us of our intrinsic connection with nature and the effect that we have upon it.” After browsing his designs, ask yourself how you could use your own limits to move forward with your creative goals in the coming year.
