Dynamicube floor & table lamp
BY GIORGIO TRAVERSO
@ VOL 8
ON MAY 08, 2014
DYNAMICUBE (floor lamp)
Dynamicube floor lamp is a simple cube made of eight enlightening smaller cubes. Three simple hinged movements invert the lamp: its outer surfaces all become inner surfaces and vice versa.
Dynamicube may easily be produced in series, given that its main structure is composed by the assembly of interlocking pieces having the same shape.
The framework is made of aluminum (a plate of a few millimeters shaped with the thick laser cut technique) and is covered with special polycarbonate films.
A sorter box is used for the exterior, which is assembled without the use of any screws or bolts.
The project takes inspiration from the patent of Peter-Michael Pfeiffer in 1964 and following evolution made by Naoki Yoshimoto in 1971.
DYNAMICUBE II (table lamp)
Dynamicube II is an enlightened cube (15x15 cm) which may be decomposed and shaped in many positions.
The project takes inspiration from the geometry of the cube and its simple decomposition.
A complete revolution of its shape may be done with a few easy movements: the outer surfaces of the cube all become inner surfaces and vice versa.
The lamp creates a paradox: when the bright faces are turned towards the interior it creates a lantern effect that does not really exist. As a matter of fact there is no light bulb or light source at the center of
the object: it's the structure itself of the cube that creates the light seen from outside.
Dynamicube II is made of four square surfaces and four triangular ones. Four square faces of the cube are OLED panels (also an option is to add four further OLED triangular panels): the OLED are both on
the external and internal faces of the cube.
The structure is made with the technology of Wood-Skin®
