In have always loved the unique design of the old iMac- so unusual for a desktop computer, and in this project explored ideas for a lamp based around it.

 

The swivelling arm allows you to reconfigure the lamp in many different positions depending on the purpose, and the USB ports could lend themselves to plug-in adaptors, which could modify the light source to flicker, be dimmable, and be influenced in other ways.

 

Very conceptual but good fun!
