Multi-Use Lighted Cube
Incorporating lighting into furniture is a hot new trend in contemporary design that can look very cool if used correctly but the trick is not to over do it. You may not want to have a whole living room done in different colored, flashing and color shifting furniture but a few interesting and well placed pieces can be ambient while adding ambiance. The Lux-Us Lighted Cube designed by Max Kistner for Ameico is subtle, interesting and versatile enough to used in a number of different ways to add some life to any room.
Imported from Germany, the Lux-Us Lighted Cube is made from a tough polyethylene cube with a hollow, illuminated interior that is suitable for use either indoors or outdoors. Each cube has an open top, a slightly smaller base and four side. tow of the sides are slightly curved inward, while the other two are curved slightly outward. This slight curve is just enough to allow them to be stacked snugly together so multiple cubes can be used together.
There are so many possible uses that there are far to many to name here because no matter how many I mention people always seem to come up with a few more. Let me name a few of the more obvious ones like seating, storage, and when used together, illuminated display shelves as shown in the image above. They make a great stool for additional seating when used on the concave side or combined with one of the optional cushions (available in orange or black). Use them outdoors on inside for a unique lighted planter like no other. The soft, indirect glow is a perfect way to light up an outdoor path or patio and creates a warm, inviting glow in your foyer.
The convex and concave sides allow you to stack two, three, four or more into any configuration and use them as book or display cases. Use a single Lux-Us Lighted Cube as a fun toy box, magazine holder or fill it with ice and fill it with wine or beer at your next get-together. I am sure that with a little imagination, you can picture a use for this versatile cube of illumination in your home, yard or garden.
A word of warning though, this is not one of those rechargeable units lit by LEDs, this lighted cube is illuminated with a 30W fluorescent bulb and needs to be plugged into the wall. The advantage to that is it is always available when you need it and it won’t lose it’s charge before your last party guests say goodbye. The Lux-Us Lighted Cube by Ameico is available from YLighting for $350.00
