This beautifully designed cylinder lamp releases more light with each twist of its wooden lid.

The intriguing cylinder lamp is called the Abre LED lamp, and is the work of Spanish designer Carlos Jimenez. The lamp creates a sort of Pandora's Box effect that makes it look like a jar that contains an ethereal light within itself. The ceramic canister of the cylinder lamp is book-ended by solid rounds of wood on its top and bottom. When the top wooden round is twisted, the bulb hidden in the cylinder lamp emerges. The more it's twisted, the more it stands out from its ceramic case, creating a heightened light intensity.

The Abre LED cylinder lamp is an extremely versatile design piece. It could be placed on any surface in any area of the house, as a reading or desk lamp or even as a nightlight.
