Back in 1973 Danish designer Holger Strom designed a module system for people to create their own lamp shapes. The IQlight, as in Interlocking Quadrilaterals, is a self assembly kit that does not require any gluing or adhesive. Each IQlight contains 30 modules. 22 lamps of different shapes and sizes can be built using 9 to 120 modulus. Website: iqlight
Nick Sayers has created a number of spheres based on the IQlight – as seen in my post highlighting his playing cards lamp.
