“/” Lamp Makes You The Designer

Dragos Motica is an architect and designer from Romania with an interesting new concept lamp designed for Romanian furniture brand Ubikubi.

In designing this lamp, Motica asked himself a few questions:
– “When an object is designed?”
– “When an object is precious, particular?”
– “What is broken and what is new?”
– “What means the result of a mechanical intervention (more or less violent on an object)?”




The result of thinking about these questions is the “/” Lamp, an object that gives the owner a subjective and personal choice as to whether they want to interact with it, change it or keep it as-is. Inspired by construction sites and industrial facilities, “/” is made of reinforced concrete, cork, and birch plywood and uses an LED.

Motica explains that the lamp “is an object at the middle of two opposite states. Intervention or non-intervention.” Go ahead, make your decision.
