Made primarily from solid walnut wood, the Arc Wall Light is hand-cut for each LED to fit snugly in the meticulously carved grooves. The final product boasts an interactive design that allows users to adjust the placement and brightness of the LED bulbs. The hidden technology generates an electric field of energy that pushes electrons through the light bulb wirelessly. Because the lights are not directly connected to an energy outlet, they only illuminate when in close proximity to the arc light, transforming a stationary wall fixture into a functional (and fun) piece of art.
The arc light was awarded the 2015 Best of Products award in Visionaries by the Architect's newspaper.
Materials: Solid wood, acrylic, aluminum and LED bulbs.
Dimensions: 23 H x 48 W x 13 D in 58.5 H x 122 W x 33 D cm.

Thislexik is a contemporary furniture design studio that pushes the boundaries of how conventional materials are used. They flip the concept of form-based design on its head, working at the intersection of aesthetics, science, and humor.
Founded in 2014 by multidisciplinary industrial designer Vedat Ulgen, Thislexik focuses on designing and producing high-quality handmade home goods and furniture that are unique and oftentimes conceptual, without sacrificing functionality. Thislexik approaches design with a loud and deliberate aesthetic, providing an environment to realize the unmade and unseen without boundaries or subtlety.
Because they are committed to ecologically responsible and intelligent methods, Thislexik believes that what they create is just as important as where they create it. Located inside of five reclaimed shipping containers in the heart of Red Hook in Brooklyn, New York, the 1,500 square foot studio implements an eco-friendly design for sustainability.
