Kroby, the snake lamp

My name is Gille Monte Ruici, I make sculptures, and particularly bots, starting from recycled matter and of waste.

Few months ago I already sent you two hacks. (See them here and here).

Here is a new one, called : KROBY the snake lamp.

To do this I used a KROBY light fixture.

Originally, I had the standard model. I wanted to customize the luminaire to match the spirit of the room, where it is now installed.

I kept the structure, which I completed with metal washbasin siphons. These twists thus represent the body of a snake.

At each end, I dressed the lamps with grid lamp shades. Finally I fixed barbecue hooks reminiscent of the mouth of the snake with its venomous hook. The set gives a very airy and unique support!

His robots are also featured in the book Assembled: Transform Everyday Objects Into Robots.
