The ‘Light Object’ by Wesley Dudok, A different sphere with the stroke of a paddle
Wesley Dudok’s Light Object is a dynamic product, which leaves its user a lot of options. Easy and effortless you can switch from worklight to a light of ambiance. At the same time the appearance of the lamp changes. Simply by altering the position. For example, when hanging the lamp on (only) one nail on the wall.
Light Object is has the shape of half a cube, but does not always appear as one. ?’I like to create tension or even power,’ Wesley Dudok says. ‘Choose work over ambiance or create a relaxing atmosphere. The user always has a say, when using my design. This way, it keeps on being a moving object, literally and figuratively.
‘??The product is made of 1,5 mm folded steal. Sprayed-in duo tones, black, grey and white surface and inside white. Being switched on, light spreads geometrically and has its source in the centre of the half-shaped cube. When positioning the lamp a certain way, the light shines a certain direction. If you choose to hang the Light Object, one nail in the wall does the trick and this nail won’t bar the way the light spreads into the surrounding space.?
