The main idea of the 5+5 lamp by OIKIMUS DESIGN is spatial transformation. Its aim is to create a simple object that would be interesting not only for adults but also for children. The object is based on a puzzle Rubik’s Snake (Rubik Erno, 1970).
The object comprises 7 elements interconnected by hinges. A simple joint mechanism allows the parts to be rotated at 360° but they can also be fixed, thus allowing creation of two-or three-dimensional shapes.
The lamp case is made of plywood. The light’s source is LEDs laid inside the case illuminating through frosted Plexiglas. The 5+5 lamp can be used both in public areas (cafes, restaurants, hotels, shops, etc.) and in the residential houses.
The main feature of the project is its versatility: thanks to its size, practicality and ease of assembly, it can be easily transformed into a table lamp, a wall lamp or even attached to a ceiling.
