Window lights / light windows

Constructed from steel rods with a hinge opening method, the minimalistic lamp fixtures can be peeled open to form multiple sets of different angles. When Māyā’s steel rods are fully unfurled, forming an obtuse angle with the lamp’s hinges, the initially concealed lamp fills the wall with warm, golden light and slim, fractal dark shadows. Then, when only slightly opened, larger geometric shadows are framed with soft beams of light. As Guidi puts it, Māyā embodies, “the simplest design with a bewitching result.” More here.

A stunning and practical idea.

  1. Only problem is that they’re easy to hit your head on or walk into if they stick out into the room. Kinda like leaving a cabinet door open.
