These minimal lighting fixtures actually are designed to be shipped flat, like a postcard. Each lamp is actually a laser-cut sheet of aluminum with an embedded LED illumination source and powered by a single button battery.
Created by Dutch designer Sander Mulder (formerly of revered design house Buro Vormkrijgers), the Eureka lamp is completely self-contained, and can be easily mailed in an envelope, then hung from the ceiling using string or wire.
Alas, the brilliant Eureka lamp is still just a prototype concept, and has not been produced for the masses. I’m hoping that a little good press might inspire Mulder to put these into production, since they are really, really cool. Heck, I’d definitely grab a few to add a little extra character to my workspace.
