margus triibmann: lightweight lightings

‘lightweight lightings’ by margus triibmann

estonian designer margus triibmann has created ‘lightweight lightings’ for his design studio, keha3. mimicking the form of a weight, this lighting element is designed for durability and flexibilty so as to last many generations: it can be suspended by industrial power cords as individual fixtures or grouped together to create chandeliers of various sizes.

an accompanying system includes additional components that allow it to be converted into a floor, desk or wall-mounted lamp. each bulb is also removable, and can thus be temporarily separated from the structure for singular use, then later placed back.
