“With respect to Paul Schatz who discovered the inversion of the platonic solids including the invertible cube.”

The idea comes from inversion concept in mathematics and geometry. The spirit of the idea is a new version of the universe through inversion concept. These collection of ideas consists of new skins/façades, new furniture and beyond. I called them “invertibles”. Now here the first one as: Invertible Lamp

The triangle (Hexagonal) shape lamp, by inverting and cycling all over the time a multi-functional lamp designed based on invertible cube. This lighting fixture includes six tetrahedrons linked to each other by hinges and the wires passed through these parts. Each part consists of one Plexiglas side as the semi-opaque part and three wooden sides. One of the three wooden part is for installing LEDs and the adjacent one is a magnetic cap for every tetrahedron to provide access to the inside.

All in one lamp!
With using the invertible lamp you just buy one lamp as a desk lamp, night lamp, decorative lamp, wall based lamp, pendant lamp (if customized) and all the shapes in between. This lamp create a spectrum of illumination conditions individually from spot light to Omni light. You can rotate the lamp and enjoy all the shapes and lighting directions according to your comfortable and desired condition. It can enliven the life as it is just like a living creature just beside you everywhere.

Future Design: Generating New Forms and Patterns
New Forms designed by joining the basic samples with different phase of rotation. These new forms have different degrees of freedom and various three dimensional sides.

New patterns also generated by arranging the same samples which capable of covering new facades and creates surface lighting.

Invertible lamp not limited to this shape, Triangle (tetrahedrons) is the first one of a wide range of various shapes, materials and scales just in the lamp category of the invertibles group.

A new version of the universe “invertibles “introduced with a beam of light here.
