I observed kids playing with pop-up toys, made of rubber. They inversed them, put them on a table and watched them flip back and jump up. I wondered how this interesting principle could be used for a lamp and what advantages rubber would have.

‚Inversilight‘ is a desk lamp with an inversible silicone lampshade, so the user can adapt the light cone to his desired use. He can choose between a focused spot light and a wide, diffused light. The switching between the two types of light is a surprising and joyful experience.
