BULBING is a versatile LED lamp optical illusion that tricks your eye and challenges your mind. Where 2D and 3D design unite!
Product designer, Nir Chehanoswki of Studio Cheha, works to preserve the old and the familiar and translate it into the “New World.” Taking everyday objects like a light bulb, a candlestick, and a lamp; he forces people to rethink their everyday objects and look at them in another (flat) light.
The design is made from an acrylic glass sheet, which is known for its incredible light transmitting properties. The base is made from high-quality plywood birch. And the light is LED, a warm glow, and won’t get hot.
By combining machine work with hand-crafting, the wooden base is cut using a CNC machine, which is then finished by hand: sanding the wood and applying a varnish. The acrylic glass design is created using a laser machine.
All circuitry is wired, adhering to the highest electric standards. Upon placing the acrylic glass design in the lamp’s base(where the LED is positioned), the light breaks through the etched surface.
The lights have on/off switch attached to the cord.
