I’m thinking designer Nick Foley’s Cubelights would rock on my bedside table instead of the lame lamp I have now. These clever and groovy fixtures connect with rare earth magnets, each acrylic cube illuminating with an LED circuit when the cubes come together. Striking specific arrangements, the cubes can create an “N,” a checkerboard-type design, a nice arch, and on you might be able to go. When you connect an acrylic cube to a wood cube, they light up and you get a nice, peaceful glow.
But as you know, Cubelights are not the only designs for which Foley has used LEDs and magnets. There’s also his amazing Pear Tree light, which would work quite nicely in the corner of my living room, right next to the couch.
You’ve got my attention, Mr. Foley… what’s next? I’ve got more rooms to fill.
