‘sauslamp’, designed by OFIS arhitekti
designed by slovenia-based OFIS arhitekti for use in their student housing project in paris,
‘sauslamp’ features a flexible, modular structure and is constructed in a range of sizes,
enabling the pieces to be adapted to different spaces while lending a sense of architectural consistency.
the ‘sauslamp’ itself is constructed from carbon fibre, secured with steel rotational joints
that permit the pieces to be bent into a range of configurations. an optional opal plexiglass cover
for the lamphead can render the light more diffuse.
the pieces are scaled to desk, floor, and street -lamp heights, all of which can be adjusted
by rotating their four internal and single floor joints.
the modular structure permits the pieces to be easily produced in a range of scales, from desk lamps to streetlights

the four rotational joints permit the lamps to be configured in a vast array of shapes
early structural sketches render the design not unlike the interlocking of vertebrae
concept rendering illustrates some of the range of shapes of the device
