OOO Lamp by Vasiliy Butenko

This yellow lamp by Ukraine designer Vasiliy Butenko can be adjusted in any direction by rotating the flat, pivoting disc that forms its shade.

An LED bulb is sandwiched between two circular steel sheets of the OOO Lamp, both one millimetre thick but with different diameters, while a third thicker sheet acts as a base to provide stability.

Two powerful magnets create a rotating joint where the plates meet a tubular stem so the light can be pointed in the desired direction.

The working prototype has been designed to work as a decorative piece when the discs sit upright, as a night light when they're horizontal or for reading and writing when positioned at an angle.

Butenko has also created pendant lamps by coiling rope around plastic bottles and covered the interior of a Kiev bar with sticks.

Recent lamps we've featured include one that looks like a paperclip and another that's dimmed using a rotating wing.
