The prototype lighting system is made from aluminium and hand-blown glass.
Components can be joined and re-arranged using connecting tubes of various lengths.
The project was one of five winning entries to our Dezeen x Design Association competition. We will announce the other winning proposals soon.

The following information is from the designers:
Tetra light is a modular lighting system being shown for the first time in its prototype state at Tokyo Design Week.
It is one of a number of collaborative design projects which artist Peter Liversidge and architect Asif Khan have been developing over the past ten months.
Khan and Liversidge are neighbours who explore design through conversation. By designing together they find unexepected conclusions to their investigations.
The lights are made from CNC machined aluminium and are fused using the same adhesives that hold aircraft wings together. The intense colour is imparted through the stove-enamelling process. Each diffuser is bespoke hand-blown glass. The light components are fully modular. They interconnect easily creating opportunites for diverse architectural and sculptural lighting.
Khan and Liversidge will be showing their Tetra light at Tokyo Design Week "Container Ground" competition winners section from 30th October to 3th November 2008.
