Here at kinder MODERN we’re always inspired by and looking for new applications for objects originally designed for children. In that vein, we love the Light 5 + 5 by Oikimus Design, influenced by the 1970’s puzzle, Rubik’s Snake by Rubik Erno. The light is composed of LED bulbs behind frosted plexiglass encased in seven separate birchwood frames connected by 360° rotating hinges, allowing the user to create two- and three-dimensinal shapes and unexpected figures. This versatile, multi-function piece can be used as a table, wall, or ceiling lamp.
Oikimus Design is the St. Petersburg, Russia-based studio of Maria Oikimus and Ivan Zverev. The duo both design and produce furniture, lighting, and other sculpture. Visit their website and Instagram to learn more.
