Swiss born and Berlin based designer and architect Clemens Tissi recently developed his first furniture collection, comprising a number of cubic pieces. There was however, one piece in particular that caught my eye. That is the wonderfully minimal Lichtkiste light box, which serves both as a floor lamp and a side table.

Initially showcased at last year's Milan Design Week, Tissi's Lichtkiste offers independent elements that enable "direct access to the subject area and volume, light and dark, light and shadow." The user modulates the light by simply moving the individual elements.

Made from MDF with a white or light grey, hand-painted surface finish, Lichtkiste measures 37cm x 35cm x 34cm. This piece would undoubtedly be a welcome addition to my living room.
