It may not look like much at first glance, but the HOLY TRINITY GmbH Rima Desk Lamp is one intelligent piece of illuminating technology. The entire length of the horizontal bar is a series of 65 LEDs that can be subdivided into separate and smaller sections of light.

The HOLY TRINITY GmbH Rima Desk Lamp is particularly clever because of its mundane inspiration; the concept of curtains on a rod. With optical sensors surrounding each ring, the metal bands control the number and length of light segments, just like the sun coming through the blinds.
