New York-based Rux Design unveiled its playful LED StickBulb lighting system at this year’s New York Design Week. Designed and manufactured at RUX’s workshop in New York City, this simple lamp is crafted from a variety of salvaged maple and sunbleached ipe wood from the Coney Island Boardwalk. The wood is fashioned into simple stick frames, with small LED bulbs embedded along the edges of the structure.
An amazingly simple design, StickBulb is an LED lamp that is designed to fit a compact LED fixture. The lamp uses the minimum materials necessary for the small bulbs, which don’t heat up with use, as traditional incandescent bulbs are prone to. But even with its minimal design, StickBulb‘s features create a versatile, modular piece. The lamp can be used as a table lamp, floor lamp or stand-alone, and it can even be branched out or placed in a vase!
