Buckminster Fuller may have popularized tensegrity (the structural integrity achieved by the interplay of compressed and tensioned building components), but lighting designer Michal Maciej Bartosik gives the principle an exciting and luminous new form with his modular lighting system, configurable as columns, beams and walls. Made up of fluorescent lights, electrical wiring and a custom-built connector – just three parts that serve both structural and electronic functions – the Tensegrity Space Frame Light employs a minimum of material for a maximum surface area. The possibilities are endless, running the gamut from single pendants to trippy, glowing mosaics that span entire facades.
