This lamp is the result of a group project in a 2012 product design studio. The “X” shape is created by two interlocking pieces of wood. The lighting mechanisms are housed in one of these pieces. I did the design, painting, and marketing for the product, while the fabrication and wiring was done by the engineering students in the group.
The shape allows for both ambient and task lighting by rotating it. Packing and moving it is made easy by disassembling and stacking the two pieces. It stands 9.5” tall.
