Okay, so this one is a little different. It’s an iodea I’ve had rattling around on occasion, so I took a stab at an iteration of it here. The idea is to have a little display light that can be configured to add a splash of light in a corner, to light a picture, highlight a table display, act as a reading light, and or all of the above.

The base of each stem is founded in a ball joint allowing each stem to be tilted and rotated all over the place. Each of the heads has a little 25 degree reflector in it to direct the light from the LEDs, which ar Seoul Semi P4’s, 3000K, 90CRI driven at roughly 800mA. In the base is the driver and dimmer. The stems and panel behind the LEDs are copper and act as heat sink.

As the photos below show, arranging the lights changes the light character and the appearance of the fixture.

Oh yes, this could esily be done in another color besides red. I just had the material on hand, and decided to use it. This would look nice in white or gray as well as black I am sure.
