Remember the Rubik’s Cube? Sure you do! What about its sister toy the Rubik’s Snake? Designers Oikimus Maria and Ivan Zverev didn’t forget about it either and designed the 5+5 Lamp based on it.
The main idea of the “5+5” lamp is spatial transformation. Its aim is to create a simple object that would be interesting not only for adults but also for children.
The object comprises 7 elements interconnected by hinges. A simple joint mechanism allows the parts to be rotated at 360° but they can also be fixed, thus allowing creation of two-or three-dimensional shapes. The lamp case is made of plywood. The light’s source is LEDs laid inside the case illuminating through frosted Plexiglas.
