Starbrick by Studio Olafur Eliasson

Here is an interesting modular light system called Starbrick which was made like an experiment by Studio Olafur Eliasson for Zumtobel. The Starbbrick structure is a cube on whose six surfaces additional cubes have been placed at a 45 ° angle. The Starbricks can be assembled into groups of any size and combination, developing in different directions.



It’s a structure that tries to test your imagination and creativity. You can create a lot of different shapes and forms just by using these few pieces. So whenever you feel like changing something inside your house, you won’t have to start moving furniture around. You can just play with these cubes. This piece has the advantage of being very flexible and this way you will probably never get bored of it. Just try not to exaggerate because the others might not appreciate your enthusiasm and they might just think you’re annoying. One thing is certain: it‘s a very fun piece.
