Hammerheads Above Us

Inspired by the head of a shovel, (and quote obviously also by the head of a certain fancy looking shark,) this is the modular street lighting system Sphyrna. Designed by FORMBOTEN, that fantastic design team from Hannover, this system is modular not only in its head, but in its height as well. The various lamp heads make this system suitable for the urban lighting of roads, roundabouts (if you’re anywhere that isn’t the USA,) or outdoor shopping malls. And bonus! There’s a fancy seat to go with the system!

You know what else this system reminds me of? Vacuum cleaner heads. The kind where you use the hose to clean inside your couch and such. Modular plugging should be applied everywhere it could be appropriate. Plugging and playing are the two best things about our modern design world!
