Will you believe that this rectangular box shaped structure is a lamp? Again, this is very different from, what we know as a lamp, in terms of structure but even more mystifying is the design on it. There’s something hidden in the black and white pattern. Can you guess?
These lamp shades are such that they look different when switched on and when switched off. These cleverly created lamps portray a different picture when lighted up in dark. So the very same lamp with the black and white striped design when lighted shows a giraffe which wasn’t visible before. Hence the name ONOFF Lamp.
This effect is due to the presence of different designs on its inside and outside. When it’s not in use what you see is the external design and when illuminated the internal one shows itself bringing about that change. You can use these rectangular shades as a standing lamp or a hanging one. This collection is by designer Hideo Kawamura. Under his design label “Rezon”, the first product which you see as the ONOFF lamp has won the Good Design Award.
