Home IKEA HACKS Lighting Ceiling 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. Photo: IKEA.com 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! See the catalogue of Gille’s works or connect with him on facebook. His robots are also featured in the book Assembled: Transform Everyday Objects Into Robots. ~ by Gille Monte Ruici Gille’s IKEA robot lamps The IKEA KVART lamps were added to these bots as “arms”.
