SANTA CRUZ, Calif., Aug. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- This morning, Elements Manufacturing announced Modulus Architects of San Jose, California, the winner of the Curvy Design Contest with their submission of the Möbius Infinity Lamp.

The Möbius Infinity Lamp by Modulus

Earlier this year, architectural firms across the country were challenged to submit designs of Pure Timber flexible hardwood. The winner will receive a fully-constructed version of their winning design, built by sponsor Elements Manufacturing, an architectural millwork firm in Santa Cruz, California. The flexible hardwood material will be provided by contest co-sponsor Pure Timber, a hardwood supplier in Gig Harbor, Washington, that has developed the proprietary Extreme Wood Bending™ process.

Modulus Architects describe the Möbius Infinity Lamp as "a beautiful new twist on the mathematical and unorientable Möbius Strip. With neither a beginning nor an end, the lamp's form is derived from a single cross section rotated about a central axis while simultaneously revolving around a full circle."  

In announcing the winner, Elements Vice President, Alan Stormes said, "We want to congratulate Modulus for an amazing design. The Möbius Infinity Lamp elegantly combines the functionality and aesthetic properties of this exciting new wood bending technology. This will be fun for our woodworking team to build and install."

Elements will build and deliver the winning Möbius Infinity Lamp to Modulus in October 2018.
