These are just too fun to pass up. Product designer Mark McKenna set out to pay homage to some of the greatest modern designers of our times, knowing full well he couldn’t possibly recreate their genius, and really, why would he even try? Instead he found his own unique voice in the Design Emulation Kit, or DEK, for short, a snap apart, snap together kit that emulates lamp designs of Castiglioni, Sapper, Starck, and Maurer. The end result is a bit irreverant in a tongue-in-cheek way, but it’s done with the utmost respect. At $29 each + the cost of a 9 volt battery, this would make a great gift for any design enthusiast.
