Pipes placed on top of each other to form a lamp. The simple but nonetheless refined concept of the Pipes Lamp underlies the design by Austrian designer Thomas Feichtner for the Italian lighting manufacturer Karboxx. Feichtner took bent pipe segments, all of differing lengths and with LEDs installed at both ends, and stacked them – each at a slight angle to its neighbors. The individual segments, themselves two-dimensional lines, are fanned out to form a round, more unified body. In this way, simply adding the segments together gives rise to a geometric light object.
