Burkhard Dämmer was inspired by Señor Miguel de Cervantes, a Spanish novelist and dramatist who was fond of sporting a ruff collar.
Cervantes demonstrates the remarkable pliability of wood veneer. The ruff-like pattern, with its elaborate figure-of-eight folds, is fashioned into an intriguing latticework of wood strips. Set into a luminaire shaped like a concave lens, the wood strips make the ideal light diffuser. 
With an air of the Renaissance and a touch of the Baroque, Cervantes is a hi-tech light hailing from noble roots.
