Sometimes a person wants artwork without having to invest in artwork; the Daylight Lamp Sculptures allow people to decorate the walls of their home and office in an artistically practical way. The modern geometric shapes of these wall-mounted lamps could be likened to glowing paintings rather than light fixtures. Made to resemble shuttered windows, the Daylight Lamp Sculptures also give the illusion that the glow is from the sun streaming through the cracks instead of from the LED strips lining their edges.

The Daylight Lamp Sculptures are created by Philippe Malouin, a designer born in Montreal and based in London. Based on the tangram, the fixtures can be arranged and rearranged to form larger shapes, really making them into a work of art.
