To accentuate excitement to room décor light fittings are incomparable. Light equipments, like the matchstick lamp, can single-handedly change the mood and temperament without changing any other elements in a room. This maple stick lamp designed to resemble matchsticks adds a trendy lightness to the room as well as adds to practicality.
Sam Thompson, an Interaction Design student at Syracuse University, as a side project has designed this LED Matchstick Light. He designed the lamp entirely from ¾” maple sticks and assembled them together with high quality stainless steel machine screws and wing nuts. The red-wired joints perfectly complement the tipped matchsticks, which when moved dim the lights upto 25% or power the lights on/off. The solid maple planks also acts as perfect camouflage to the wiring complexities hidden within.
Zack Shivers, an electrical engineer has designed the circuit and devised the vents on the side and top to cool the LEDs and allow for a long life. The unmatched power efficiency and brightness of the LED being the added advantage. To ensure perfect stability and stand erect, the maple base of the light is filled with steel bars. The designer informs that only 28 of such distinctly numbered lights will be made available for sale, the processing of which is currently going on.
