See who are featuring Brick Lamp
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 concrete version of Brick Lamp is made from a special mix of cement and fine grain sands. It is cast in a high quality rubber mold to create a super fine and smooth finish.
- An alternative wood version is designed to suit your classic interior furnishing. This version is made from an authentic single piece of wood lumber, coated with an all natural eco-friendly clear stain to give it an elegant finish.
The on & off mechanism is designed to work on all kinds of firm and horizontal surfaces including counter tops, blank covered floors, or glass tables.
Our Kickstarter-exclusive 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.
Super Easy to use, simply raise or flip Brick Lamp up from the surface it is laying on. Brick Lamp will be on instantly. To turn it off simply turn it over to conceal the light. Brick Lamp can also sit on it's sides allowing it to direct the light sideways, or you can flip it upside down letting the light shine up.
You can use Brick Lamp with or without the cord attached. When the cord is attached, it simultaneously supplies the power of LED and charges the lithium-ion built-in battery. Once it is fully charged, the protection circuit will automatically disconnect. Brick Lamp’s fully charged battery can last up to 5 hours with normal use.
Our goal was to make Brick Lamp extremely simple to use with a refreshingly clean style. To achieve this we designed Brick Lamp with no buttons or control panel. The sides are beveled so it is easy-to-grab and handle. When sitting on the short side, the light's angle is straight up, and when on the long side, the light's angle is more downward. Keeping things balanced, Brick Lamp is engineered so the weight is perfectly distributed and it can stand both vertically and horizontally.
Portable and wireless, Brick Lamp is easily recharged using a USB port, you can charge it to your computer, laptop, and wall socket.
Once the mechanics of Brick Lamp are fully functional we can expand the Brick Lamp line with a full array of materials that suit anyone’s taste.
For $25 backers, we will send you a concrete accessory of your choice either a paper weight or necklace. These were created during the research process for the concrete version of the Brick Lamp. Please see below for more special offers.
