German designer Florian Gross, whose work I featured in some of my previous posts, came up with a cool new lighting fixture – Kobe. Inspired by the hyperbolic cylinder, the piece consists of twelve oak slats, two aluminum disks and a lamp socket. To assemble the lamp simply clip wooden slats into the indentations of the two aluminum disks and twist them into position. You can change the height of the light and silhouette of the lamp to your liking. And it’s just as easy to take apart for moving and storage. Beautiful.
