Kyle Daevel has created Cabinet Light, a wall lamp that is a hybrid of two ubiquitous typologies; interior domestic cabinetry and exterior sign cabinetry.
Says Daevel, "Functionally, opening the doors of the cabinet activates the light. Reed switches inlayed into the cabinet frame are used to sense the doors movement. The user has the ability to control the amount of light released by manipulating the position of the doors."
"The Cabinet Light is manufactured in North America by sign fabricators. The light is produced using sign cabinetry fabrication processes such as CNC and powder coating and is made from sign materials like Lexan, aluminum, and LEDS."
Cabinet Light was exhibited at the AmDC event Use Me as part of the 2011 NoHo design district, located in NYC, as well as the Cranbrook group show One X One in Detroit, MI.
