Cycle Halo by Ushki Design Studio

‘Cycle Halo’ is a standing lamp made of a used bicycle weal, a plastic frame lit with LED lighting and a wood and aluminum frame that holds it.
The design of the lamp resulted from the attempt to take the wheel of the bike, pull it out of its context and give it a new one. The movement of the wheel in its past use, reinterprets into the movement of light – creating a halo looking light.
The lamp’s structural design stemmed from a desire to examine the balance between using the existing features of the object and detaching from the past to create new features that suit the new use.
