The Moxie Lamp Employs Excess Cable as a Luminescent Diffuser

With most lampshades, one is not generally able to adjust the intensity of the rays emitted from a light fixture, but with the Moxie Lamp, the user is granted a great deal more flexibility. Melanie Thomas's concept comprises a skeleton of a table lamp and a cover for it that can be as open or impenetrable as desired.

Snow Design in Ireland helped to laser cut the thin wooden components of the lamp's frame. Six identical pieces are then slotted together around a bare lightbulb to make a many-legged stand and the slatted silhouette of a lampshade. Notches along these sloping sides of the Moxie Lamp give you a hint of what to do with it: wrap the bright orange cable around the top to reduce some of the beaming light.
