Tilelamp in Brazil

Brazilian studio 20.87 has designed the Casa do Lado located in São Paulo Brazil. The firm has transformed the old house into a huge lamp while using simple and cheap material including plastic panels and LED lights. The old house was being utilized as a gallery for design exhibitions. Design store MiCasa requested the architect to develop the project while creating the space for art exhibition in its interior.

In order to keep a space between the tiles and the wall the structure was fixed at a distance of 20 centimeters from the previous construction. The low-cost translucent folded panels permit the lighting to climb around the edges of the façade turning the whole component into a wonderful lamp lit. Take a look!
