Nir Chehanowski of Israeli design firm Studio Cheha endeavors to alter our perception of everyday objects by using 3-D forms as the basis of his 2-D designs. This visually surprising flat LED lamp is composed of an acrylic sheet which is laser engraved into a classic bulb silhouette and covered with dozens of intricate incised lines that suggest dimensionality and bulbous form of archetypal light bulbs. When inserted into the wooden birch wood base, LED light travels through the lines illuminating the design and creating a powerful optical illusion that challenges our comprehension of space. Mitigating the complexity of concept and construction with a minimalist, universally understood form, the BULBING Lamp adds artistry, interest, and the gentle glow of ambient light to any room. Made in Israel.
