Duplex Flip Light

By February 20, 2017 IPPINKA BLOG, Product Stories

As a two-in-one lampshade, this Duplex flip light can turn into a desk lamp for a working space or as a pendant light when you want to bright up a room. Designed by Shawn Yang, this duo lampshade was intended to be playful while providing optimal lighting. “Both ways bring comfort atmosphere into the living space,” Yang says.

The design was drawn so that Duplex can easily alternate between desk lamp and pendant light. The upside-down funnel works as a flat surface by changing the light bulb’s position to the top instead of inside it. There is a small gap for the wire to run through so Duplex can stay completely flat on any surface.

The wire will be used to hang the upside-down funnel when it is in pendant light mode.

The Duplex flip light was part of Yang’s portfolio of design work which was his graduate project. Included in his portfolio as well is a giant Spirograph lab machine that can transfer two-dimensional patterns onto physical objects.

The machine’s name is self-titled for the Spirograph toy. How the toy works is that it draws petal-shaped concentric patterns by guiding a pen with interlocking plastic cogs and toothed rings – and the lab machine creates the patterns the same way.

With its motor and cogs, the industrial designer’s Spirograph shoots out resin in a constant pattern of concentric circles and ovals onto a piece of fabric or homeware. Homeware that the Spirograph lab machine can be used on includes plates, bowls, lampshades, and candleholders.

However, Yang did tweak his wooden Spirograph workstation. “I redesigned it by using magnets, which can reduce restrictions and are also easier to operate.” He said.
