This unique tabletop luminaire challenges our preconceptions about how a lighting solution should look and behave. Called “Tessallate” for the mosaic-like plates from which it’s composed, users won’t find any bulbs or sockets. Instead, the modular design works by utilizing electricity-conducting magnets that also hold each plate and the end sections together. Any number of light units (plates) can be crisscrossed together to create more or less light, meaning users can assemble a large collection for substantial living spaces or trim it down to one or two plates for a desktop. Placed on its side or made to stand upright, its footprint is also adjustable to the user’s liking.
