Dodeck Lamp by Merge GbR

What child isn’t impressed by the expanding Hoberman Sphere? Yet, as adults, the colorful toy may become irrelevant, the neon plastic too gaudy and clunky. Dodeck Lamp from Berlin-based studio Merge GbR reinterprets simple geometries and its form bears vague resemblance to a dodecahedron, but with far more structural complexities. The monochromic design from the creative minds of Markus Dilger and Thomas Hiemann features tri-star components that form a decorative shell around a single naked bulb. Dodeck Lamp evokes the ordered patterns of crystals, and even the natural beauty of molecules and bonds. But not to worry — the sophistication of the lamp does not overshadow the fun; assembling the components becomes a hands-on exploration of the lamp’s physical design.
