Tokyo-based creative Ryuichi Kozeki (of RKDS) embarks on a project that produces modern objects. The focus is on the relationship between interlocked components. With a relatively structuralist approach to design, the professional moves away from productivity — an understandably prominent concern in product design. Instead, Ryuichi Kozeki chooses to explore "the relationship between light and objects." OCULUS is a venture into this dichotomy.

The end result boasts a stylishly minimalist lamp design through aesthetically pleasing modern objects that are highly engaging. Ryuichi Kozeki's lamps "take forms based on how [they] were hollowed." The incredibly unique silhouettes offer a stylish yet non-invasive embellishment to the interior space. Their primary function is to create a tranquil and art-driven ambience which motivates questions about our overall expectations of the furniture in the home.
