Industrial design graduate Ido Mohar has made a series of lamps that stand to attention when switched on and take a graceful bow when switched off.

Each one has components made from nitinol, an alloy of nickel and titanium that's often used in the medical and space industries for its ability to "remember" a shape when a current is passed through it.

Two of the Delight lamps move the light source upwards when switched on while the third lifts a lens to spread the light across a table (above).

"The slow movement gives a moment of pause to the viewer and enhances functionality by focusing the light, bringing it across the table," says Mohar.
