The Modulares Light: Box-Like, Modular, and Transforms Shapes

Lights are really important in any home. Lights are able to change the mood and feel of a room, more than anything else. That's why it's good to have lighting fixtures that can be used in different ways. Most lights just tend to be fixed and not change at all. This is why we think that Robert Hoffmann's Modulares lights are great. They change shape, kind of like your favorite transforming robots! Read on to find out more.

This cool set of lights is made by Robert Hoffmann for his final diploma thesis. He made 3 different lights. Each of them can have the side panels tilted. This will change the shape of the light and control the intensity. Now that is pretty great. In fact, Modulares Light are adjustable luminaries that are made out of aluminum and steel. The basic structure has been put together using joints. By spinning and tipping the outer flats around, the inner structure dispenses more light. Bright lights can become dim at night thanks to using your hands to change the direction and structure of the light itself. The designer says that the variability of the modules enables swift and surprising new light-room constellations.

That sounds neat. The lights are available as a chandelier, a wall fixed light, or a table lamp. Just by changing the structure of the lights with your hands, you'll change the amount of light that your room receives. We like how tactile this is. It encourages people to use their hands and fiddle around with the lights, which is something that we rarely due since most light fixtures are inherently fragile.
