Nostalgia meets contemporary with the Pixel Table Light, designed by Brooklyn based industrial designer, Nicholas Baker. While shining light through a 3D print, Baker noticed a unique illuminated effect from the print’s grid-like internal structure. Baker expanded upon this effect and drew further inspiration from the retro-digital world and it’s 8bit iconography. Pixel features a diffusive grid where each square emits a different level of lighting - giving the appearance of a “pixelated” light. This unique 8bit look was made possible by adjusting the opening on the back of each square - thereby allowing a specific amount of light to shine through. During the design process, Baker went through countless rounds of testing to find the perfect shape and size for the grid to achieve the desired lighting effect. Pixel Table Light is perfect for those with an affinity for contemporary or nostalgic style, adding a modern yet playful touch to illuminate your space.
