THE DESIGNER
“Since I was a child, I was fascinated by Pop-up books…The excitement before turning a page, a simple pull that uncovers a whole new world. I loved how the story came to life, how the books created a fantasy world that flew off the page. The magic, the excitement, the naiveté…”
Chen Bikovski is a Tel Aviv-based designer exploring the relation of light and space. Named “Promising Young Designer of 2012,” Chen‘s work is presented in prominent galleries and featured in leading design publications. “The idea behind Popup Lighting was to create a permanent light fixture that would bring a magical ambiance to any space. A multi-dimensional light that would inspire the senses and ignite the imagination.” Popup Lighting brings back the excitement, surprise and innocence of pop-up books to our everyday lives through art and design.

THE DEBUT DESIGN
Chen debuts her collection of three exclusive designs; a deer head, an owl and a peacock with her favorite and selected piece – the Deer Head. In this design, metal replaced paper, paper cutting transcended to laser-cutting technology and paper folding was exchanged for cutting-edge metal folding and the magical pop-up effect…is achieved with light. “I had a vision to take every day icons and make them come to life in an artistic and elegant way. I began with the Dear Head which is a classic, nostalgic wall piece. With Popup Lighting, I gave it a contemporary and sophisticated interpretation.”

THE STORY
Popup Lighting is a light fixture inspired by popup books. The idea was to turn every day icons into artistic and elegant lamps.
The clean shape of the lamp is amplified by the light’s reflection on the wall, creating a “wow effect”  and making the ambiance in the room magical… Bringing back that excitement and naivety we felt when we opened our first popup book.

WHEN LIGHT MEETS ART
Popup Lighting was made to bring a unique ambience to any space. The game of light and space turns the lamp into a work of art, painting itself all over again every time it’s lit.
With a simple flip of the switch, beams of light turn into brush strokes turning the lamp into a work of art that dramatically changes the atmosphere, setting the mood and sparking the imagination.

THE INSPIRATION
When I was a child I loved popup books, they had the ability to take me into a world of fantasy and magic that always inspired my dreams. Each time I flipped a page I was sent down the rabbit hole, and just like Alice in Wonderland, I discovered a new fantasy world hidden in the ordinary looking book – the surprise making the magic all the more real. Growing up, those feelings of magic and fantasy were getting harder and harder to find. That’s why I created Popup Lighting. I always felt that there was something magical about light, so, with my passion for art and design I created a light fixture that would bring those nostalgic feelings of magic, excitement and innocence back into our everyday lives and by doing so, allow us to share them with our friends and loved ones.

THE DEER HEAD
The Deer Head lamp is a wall-mounted light fixture that can be used to light a multitude of spaces. It’s a classic, nostalgic wall piece given a contemporary and sophisticated interpretation.
When lit, the Deer Head lamp creates a magical ambience. It’s perfect for any situation; romantic moments in intimate spaces or magical fantasy in a child’s bedroom.
