Tu-Be 1 is created by the banal, commonplace, everyday things that you hardly notice. The idea came from Ron Arad, when he was working on a design process around a new type of toothpaste. Designer took the tubes out of their usual context and began to explore ways to transform them into reflectors. TU-BE 1 consists of 35 aluminum tubes, some of which are open at the bottom, while others are closed. Two of the open tubes are recessed halogen lighting, while four have built-in LED light. The lamp fits ceiling heights up to 350cm / 138in and done to order for ceiling heights up to 450cm / 177in.
