CuBe

After several months I’ve made my lamp „CuBe“ finally. I am still very excited about the whole journey. I also want to say thank you to Seoul Semiconductor who offered a generous funding of our project.

Object: CuBe – wall lamp

Size: 240 X 240 X 145 mm

Weight: 1.9 kg

The wall lamp CuBe is inspirited by some childhood memories about an Origami (paper folding) game. The magic moment comes when nine cubes are unfolded. The lamp can be twisted in clockwise and counterclockwise directions. The lighting range can be enhanced by unfolding the cubes.

Each cube is a light unit including a Polypropylene (PP) lampshade, a LED module and a heat sink. All cubes are connected through three invisible PP strips. With magnetic chips in the lampshades, the cubes are attracted to each other. It is easy to unfold the cubes by pulling any two cubes on the diagonal.
