New Lab’s Jason Krugman Studio has released its first commercial product: the Splyt light. (And it’s a hit on Kickstarter.)
New Lab’s Jason Krugman has paired with Copenhagen-based designer Scott Leinweber to develop the Splyt light: a kit of connectors that allows consumers to build their own light fixtures—without tools, or a substantial budget. Speaking of budgets: the project has knocked over its Kickstarter goal of $15,000; with fifteen days to go, its surpassed that number by over $20,000—a testament to the beauty and approachability of the customizable designs.
“We loved the idea of people creating their own fixtures with simple hardware store Y-splitters by screwing lots of them together to make organic, fractal-like chandeliers,” Krugman and Leinweber write on their Kickstarter page. “Our goal was to innovate a cleanly designed piece for more elegant fixtures.”
Splyt modules will come in three kits that allow for an expanse of possibilities: from useful table lights to elaborate chandeliers.
