LIGHT_NESS is a lighting concept by Amsterdam-based company UXUS that is an interactive project that puts the end user in control of the design.

The lamps are made of a frame, neon orange tape and a cord. The final product is created by wrapping the tape around the frame to create the lampshade. UXUS developed the concept where user and designer roles become interchangeable; the consumer dictates what the product should look like and the designer is limited to simply providing the material. I love when designers create these types of products where you become the designer.

LIGHT_NESS was first introduced during Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven at the Klokgebouw.
