RUX design: stickbulb lamp

‘stickbulb’ by RUX design ‘wall torch’ series H24 x L4.5 x W1 inches / H61 x L11 x W2.5 cm H36 x L6 x W1 inches / H91 x L15 x W2.5 cm

versatile lamp series ‘stickbulb‘ by new york-based design firm RUX re-imagines the common light bulb. each element is an LED strip housed within a metal finish or sleek wooden beam ranging in length from one foot to seven feet long – the wood itself is maple, walnut or ipe salvaged from coney island boardwalk. ‘stickbulb’ can be arranged in multiple ways in such that it can function as a sconce, leaned against the wall as a minimalist light fixture, or mounted to the underside of a shelf to illuminate work surfaces. minimal steel hardware pieces also allow ‘stickbulbs’ to be cantilevered from walls or bundled together like a bouquet, accommodating a wide range of functional requirements and aesthetic tastes. the design is available in wall torch; table torch; floor torch; middle and little vase; as well as little bang, middle bang and big bang options.
