A minimal and portable LED lamp, is activated when raised(on) or laid flat(off). The objective is to capture the moment of light - being concealed and revealed. This unique lighting design would turn a quotidian routine into an enriching experience, providing an unexpected, fun quality to a daily object. We accomplished this by making a simplified and functional lamp, instead of a switch, light is activated when raised(on) and deactivated when laid flat(off). By creating the side facets, a natural handle is made and also directs the light when the brick sits on it’s sides. The metal version is milled precisely out of a single piece of solid aluminum block by a Computer Numeric Controlled machine. To give it a sleek metallic touch, we use sand blasted matte finish on the bevels and brush texture on the top surface. The finished product then goes through an electric anodized process to permanently seals and protects the aluminum from rust and stain.
