Where form meets function

London design duo Glithero takes the domino line to a new level by designing a lamp that turns on via dominoes.

Aptly dubbed, “Domino Light,” the device, which is designed like a tower featuring the bulb at the top, is equipped with a set of conductive copper dominoes that is neatly packaged inside the body frame of the lamp.

Offering freedom of expression, the dominoes can be arranged in any configuration desired, however, the first and last domino must meet up with the copper strips embedded into each side of the lamp base in order for the light to be activated. A video provided by Deezen, showcases the playful take on illumination.

Overall, the concept of this design was intended to expose the hidden technical process behind the process of lighting. “With so much technology in our lives it is easy to take for granted that even simple things such as turning on a light are made possible by the physical properties of materials,” said Glithero co-founder Tim Simpson.
