I’ve designed a lamp where the main body is constructed from 1.6mm folded mild steel (I’ve attached pictures below for reference). However for legal reasons I’d prefer to be able to replace this metal part with a non-conductive alternative. The problem is I’m not entirely certain that any good alternative exists; Some sort of rigid plastic might work, but then I’d have issues with tooling, and creating draft angles etc. The only other material I can think of is laminated wood veneers, which might offer a good stiffness without too much of an increase in thickness, but I suspect the layup process might be time consuming, and I’m not sure you can get small radius curves of less than 2cm.
Does anyone here have good experience with laminating wood or know of a good alternative material that I might have missed?
