A floor lamp, bedside lamp and reading lamp all in one, S7 [2] is a versatile new lighting design by Structures [3]. Founded by sailor turned designer Nicolas Pichelin [4], Structures developed the fascinating and flexible LED lamp [5] to have an interchangeable head which can be rotated 360 degrees. This ultra versatile lamp is being sold by Ameico [6] is one of our green picks from New York Design Week [7] this year.


Just like a snake, the S7 [2] achieves its stability from a coil at its base, while the top half can be extended, coiled and even intertwined. It is constructed in two parts – a flexible body and a lamp head, that are connected via a patented electromagnetic attachment system, so that they can be bent and shaped as desired. The head contains 8 3W high efficiency LED lights [5], which the body is made of composite materials ensuring power efficiency as well as durability. We not only love the flexibility of choosing the shape and the lamp head, but also how the lamp embodies the sleekness of LEDs.
