Over the past couple hundred years, the process of design has largely been shifting away from consumer involvement; however, products like this DIY desk lamp stimulate the participation of the user in its making. Sure, the average Joe would not know how to wire a light fixture or accurately cut all necessary components, but the possibility of assembling its structure is within the feasible domain.

The GeekCook Pixar Lamp can be purchased in a kit with a couple dozen pieces, mostly made from precision-cut plywood. All necessary holes have been drilled, enabling the amateur manufacturer to fit everything together like a puzzle.

This DIY Desk Lamp would appeal as a great project for children and older youth, as well as adults with interests in small hands-on challenges.
