Designer Emulation Kits: Flatpack Homage to Classic Modern Lighting


Created by designer Mark McKenna as a homage to modern lighting design, these Designer Emulation Kits are a great example of why TreeHugger loves flatpack design. Stamped from a single sheet of metal (that could fit in an envelope for easy shipping), the classic designs come to life with a few bends from the flat sheet. Once assembled, they're powered by a single (rechargeable, of course) 9V battery. It won't light your living room, but that's not really the point; they'd make a fun desk lamp, and show that real function and structure can come from a simple sheet of stamped metal. Another fun example is below the fold. ::Designer Emulation Kits via ::2modern Design Talk
