Charles Kalpakian's Hanging Lamps Spell Out Different Mathematical Axes

— April 25, 2016 — Art & Design
The '3tubes' lights designed by Charles Kalpakian offer a mathematical approach to interior design by recreating the X,Y and Z axes popular in trigonometry with the cylinder lights. The three dimensional pieces bring to life the math concepts while simultaneously creating asymmetrical home decor pieces that are modern and quite striking to look at.

Kalpakian's designs are sleek, minimal and make use of linear lines to create stunning and angular decor pieces for the home. The lamps are made out of chrome in white or copper shades, that mirror the surroundings in the reflective material. The tubes cross at different angles to create unique axil shapes providing a spotlight through the bulb at the base of the central light. The lamps are made to be hung from the ceiling to give an avant-garde look to any space.
