Julian Robin and the Cub Lamp, a Block of Wood and a Lamp

French designer Julian Robin has designed a tricky piece of furniture. The Cub Lamp looks like a normal block of wood (because it's totally normal to have a block of wood sitting in your house), until you turn it on (and I know you know how to do that) and it becomes a light. The interior of the Cub Lamp is etched with a leaf design.

The contrast between on and off presents a comment on nature. When off, the Cub Lamp bares little resemblance to its original form. When on, the tree the wood once was shines through. Stats for Bright Wood Blocks Trending: Older & Chilly
