cable cubes is a modular cable arrangement system for the wall. each cable can be attached to a cube with the appropriate connector. the cubes can be plugged into one another to add on as many cubes as needed. in addition, every module can be fixed on the wall, when there is a need for more stability.

‘tangible’ light

the intensity of the light can be controlled by changing the position of the lamp shade.

  • The lamp is a wonderful copy of Adrien Gardère product for Artemide !!!!

    Bull says:
  • I think the clever thing about this lamp is you can change the position of the lamp shade. The shape itself (clean and minimal) is ok, and might have some resemblance to Adrien Gardère’s design but I believe that is not the main issue here…

    mariucha says:
  • I insist, but just have a look to the main concept of artemide lamp, it’s exactly the same. You can pivote the top of the light and the shape, the concept and the color itselft are also strongly similare. I know we are all living at the same trends period and I know that some many ideas are close to each other. But here, I feel that the designer didn’t pay attention of what already exist.

    Bull says:
  • check out the video on how the lamp works.

    you can actually turn on and off the light by positioning the shade.
