This Manifattura Italiana Illuminator Intricately Requires Assembly

The design team over at Manifattura Italiana Design have created a Jenga-like lamp called the Babele Lamp that is created using a central column of light and sliding wooden slats.

The center pole is illuminated and requires the included slats to be slide onto in whatever formate desired. Perhaps one day a standard desk lamp is preferred, while another day brings about a preference for a more post-modern design.

Manifattura Italiana Design is renowned for complexing creations that strike a cord with design junkies and the Babele Lamp is no short of fascinating. Lighting solutions are often quite utilitarian and only require a bulb before being able to operate. This design calls the user into action by requiring that assembly be done prior to usage; what better way to encourage modifications and create custom-tailored products?
