Comments Off on D-TWELVE: Beautiful LED lamp made of customizable dodecahedron modules

If you’re looking to light up your room with a beautiful LED lamp, the customizable D-TWELVE light may be just what you’re looking for. Recently unveiled on Kickstarter by the Rome-based design startup Plato Design , the D-TWELVE is made up of dodecahedron modules with magnetized sides. The magnets, which pass current from one module to another, allow users to combine modules into a variety of shapes; only one module needs to be plugged in to the power grid at a time. The LED lamps are made from a choice of CNC-cut European Beech wood, screen-printed fabric, and concrete. + D-TWELVE Kickstarter The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
