Designed as a colorful luminary and for hands on interaction, these hand-cast resin blocks connect together to form a lamp. Many configurations are possible from a single set. The 'TwistTogether' lamps illuminate with LEDs which provide a safe, low-voltage and long lasting light source while consuming less power than a standard night light.: - Glide Inc.

TwistTogethers are interactive objects to boot. Stacked between shelves (like glowing cinder blocks) they integrate lighting into furniture, making for an updated version of the college bookshelf or they can form right angles to wrap around corners and tabletop edges. They're available in candy colors for a more pop feel or a “chocolate” palate that lends a 50s-era look.

Implications - Ultimately, everyday pieces that boast a creative element are sure to attract the closeted creative.
