Modern Contemporary Design


Brick is a minimal lamp that works with no switch, no shade and no wire.


Details: The intuitive Brick Lamp, designed by HCWDstudio, interacts with a hand gesture – light is activated when raised(on) and deactivated when laid flat(off).

The lamp housing can be made in wood, cast concrete, or aluminum and has a bevel made for easy grabbing. The weight is engineered to make it sit up stably and a built-in lithium-ion battery powers the LED lighting, allowing the lamp to glow continually for up to five hours with a single charge using a USB charging port.


Say designers HsinChun Wang and Ye Liu, “The original idea of this project is to let people aware of the moment of concealing and revealing light. We took this idea for brainstorming and finally came up with the unique lighting design would turn a quotidian routine into an enriching experience, providing an unexpected, fun quality to a daily object.”


We liked Brick when we first saw it in 2010.
