Like A Sort of Vine Lamp

This right here is the Climbing Lamp. It is not alive, contrary to the title. It does appear to be climbing, however, just like a good vine plant wood. The Climbing Lamp is also a kit, the kind of kit that allows you to make your own combinations of angles, attachments, and directions. 8 pieces and a plethora of possibility!

Nice of those people at Trust In Design to provide a list of statistics, wasn’t it? That’s so convenient!

This set runs on florescent fluo tubes contained in strips assembled by you, the user. Simple fixation points allow you to connect the 8 pieces in the set together in a wide range of ways. Fixation points can be connected to basically any surface that will hold the small amount of weight, and each strip can be adjusted to point the light in your optimal direction.

What’s your optimal direction?

    In that first frame, did the dog just leave it’s deposit on the base of the lamp? Maybe he/she thought it was a vine or fireplug?

    I like the idea, but why is there a dog in the first picture and I really dont think you can support a lamp on a power socket like that. Ever heard of regualtions? This is very hard to understand, the photos are non-descriptive of what this lamp can actually do. Not even one perspective shot to see how it supports itself against a wall.
