Tetra light \ Brooks Atwood

• April 4, 2013

Brooks Atwood recently has created the Tetra light.

Take the mundane out of your workspace with the innovative Tetra Light. Inspired by the highly stylized retro-futurism of Bladerunner, this geometric neon desk lamp features a brilliant daylight-inspired glow and a dimmer function that helps to enhance any type of mood. This 10mm geometric neon desk lamp pushes the limits of glass bending by combining only three bends.

The form really challenges the idea of neon. The design takes the typical curvy neon letters and reduces all the excess. The form pushes the limits of glass bending by combining only 3 bends. The reduction becomes its essence. The reduction becomes the pure geometry.

POD Design worked directly with the manufacturer in order to challenge the traditional methods of neon fabrication and also to see how far they could push the design. From every angle, the light takes on a different geometrical form.

Materials: Natural white, 6,500k true natural daylight, 10mm recycled glass. Wire, hot glue, rubber
