The Helix Lights are yet another impressive piece of work from Nigerian Designer, Damola Rufai. You may recall his award winning Esho Table as well as its predecessor, the Esho Lamp. Today we look at yet another piece of lighting design in the Helix Lights.

In his words,

The Helix Lights are Handmade lights designed and handcrafted in Lagos, Nigeria. Created to have a sense of playfulness while evoking thoughts of suspended animation.

The coil of each light is made from a sheet of steel that has been shaped and bent to take on a sculptural form that can give a different perspective when viewed from different angles.

The form also gives the opportunity of giving the coil some element of duality by making the outer surface a different color from the inner surface. This allows for exploration with different colors to evoke different moods depending on the space they inhabit.
