Product description

TU-BEs is a lighting object made of toothpaste tubes - a collaboration
of Ingo Maurer and Ron Arad.

"It's the fascination of banal things, ordinary objects you see and use everyday,
so well known you don't even notice them anymor

e. Their transformation
takes them out of their context, evoking illusions, exploring their possibilities as
light reflectors. This is the leitmotiv of TU-BE.", says Ingo Maurer.

It was Ron Arad who had the idea to use these tube

s for a lighting object,
when he was working on the design for a toothpaste. Apart from the
large object, there will also be smaller variants available as hanging lamps.
