The Ess Lite, a lamp created by Canadian industrial designer Whitney Robinson, makes use of clever, puzzle-like pieces for its frame. With four different pieces that can support the rectangular prism of the lamp itself, the Ess Lite can be placed in virtually any configuration depending on the user's taste.
The Ess Lite has both practical and theoretical benefits. In terms of pragmatic function, the lamp fixture offers so many different formations that any time a user might get bored with one set up, they can swap it out for a brand new one.
Theoretically speaking, the Ess Lite dramatically increases the interactivity between user and object. Most lamps' interactivity tops out at the on/off switch, but the Ess Lite demands creativity from its user.
