Talk about space-saving design. We’re all for products and furniture that help us use space efficiently, but we like these 2-dimensional LED desk lamps either way. At first glance it’s difficult to understand how this lamp is flat, but at closer inspection you’ll see the 3D illusion is achieved with a flat laser-carved acrylic surface. The clever desk accessory comes from Studio Cheha, a design firm located in Tel Aviv, and can be pre-ordered through their Kickstarter project.
The lamps are available in three styles including DESKi, ZIGGi, and CLASSi. Each design is inspired by classic, vintage-styled desk lamps. By deconstructing the 3D form, the designers were able to create patterning on a clear, flat surface that mimics the look of a voluminous lamp when switched on.
Sudio Cheha’s design philosophy is to reimagine everyday objects in cool and creative ways. They are committed to producing original products that will alter your perception of space and form through their process where they use 3D shapes to inform 2D design (they hit the nail on the head with this one).
