Introducing the Rubik’s Snake Lamp, designed by Oikimus Maria and Ivan Zverev, of Oikimus Design.
Just like the toy Rubik’s Snake (a hit of the seventies, really), the lamp is made up of elements interconnected by hinges that allow the parts to rotate 360° to create various two- and three-dimensional shapes. Do note that the lamp’s case is made of plywood, outfitted with LEDs inside that illuminate through frosted Plexiglas.
We loved it because it can transform into a table lamp or a wall lamp, but it can even be attached to your ceiling.
