mmckenna Designer Emulation Kit - Toio Lamp
Designer Emulation Kits (DEKs) are tributes to some of the all-time great industrial designers. Use the kit to make your own design classic. Assemble, attach to a 9-volt battery, and enjoy The project was actually started as a joke—an amusing paean to Mark’s mentor and former employer, lighting designer Ingo Maurer. However, it quickly expanded, taking on a life of its own and obtaining coverage in magazines and blogs. Eventually, the DEKs established the manufacturing component of mmckenna. The DEKs are made of printed circuit board (PCB) and while the circuitry is quite simple, the CNC milling operations are quite ambitious. We pushed our vendors to hold tolerances down to .002 inches, about the thickness of a human hair. Manufactured by mmckenna.DEK 4 is modeled after Castiglioni’s Toio. It is the second Castiglioni lamp to be emulated, further proof of his extraordinary genius.9-volt battery not included.
