Optical Illusion 2D Lamp Looks Incredibly 3D


Studio Cheha in Tel Aviv, Israel is behind this innovative LED lamp that tricks your mind into thinking it’s looking at a 3D object. BULBING is a 2D lamp created using 3D wire-frame images. By transferring those images onto 2D materials, through a laser machining process, your eyes become fooled. The changeable design is made from acrylic glass sheet and the base is made of plywood birch. The light is LED, giving it a lifespan of 50,000 hours.

As it states on Kickstarter, “All circuitry is wired, adhering to the highest electric standards. Upon placing the acrylic glass design in the lamp's base (where the LED is positioned), the light breaks through the etched surface.”

You can change out the designs simply by lifting out the acrylic from the base and snapping in a new one. Watch the video, below, to see what we mean. (They had me at the “balloon” design.)
