How can a simple lamp be made more useful?

Troncs Task Lamp

Troncs provides a simple mechanism for controlling the light quality of your workspace. Inspired by the way light filters through trees, it is composed of two cylinders that overlap each other - thereby controlling the amount of light dispersed.

Troncs (French for tree trunks) is inspired by light filtering through a forest. The outer cylinder can be spun to align or stagger the vertical wooden strips, as a result a user can regulate the quality and quantity of light. When "closed" the lamp emits a dimmer and yellower light, when "opened" it is a brighter, bluer light. The light was developed as part of a project to have flat-packable lighting.

When the two cylinders are lined up, the light disperses it's maximum amount of light, which appears cooler in temperature.

Partially staggered slats offer a customizable amount of light dispersion.

offset slats

When the slats are completely offset, or in their "closed" position, the light becomes diffused through the wood, resulting in a warmer quality of light.
