Looking for some design ideas, I found something really extraordinary. It’s Mark McKenna’s DIY (do-it-yourself) package to design battery lights. The kit contains a series of flat pieces, which you need to assemble. Then, you hook them up to a 9-volt battery, which should be the light source.
There are five different lamp kits for five models respectively. The mini-lamps are representations of the most famous designer lamps: Ingo Maurer’s Lucellino, Castiglioni’s Arco and Toio, Sapper’s Tizio, and Philippe Starck’s Miss K. Each kit costs $26. In my opinion, the idea of a DIY battery lamp is extraordinary. First, you solve a puzzle, then you enjoy the cool lamp from your desk. Nice!
