About the Designer
David studied Industrial Design before contributing to a number of architectural and interior design firms in Toronto. In 1999 he co-founded Stylegarage in the city's West Queen West neighborhood, which served as a retail outlet for his furniture designs, emphasizing raw materials, clean lines, and basic forms. After quickly gaining local notoriety for his contemporary, unfussy approach to furniture, David and his partners launched Gus* in 2001, taking his designs to a North American market and earning the "Best New Collection" distinction at the 2001 International Gift Fair in Manhattan. Collecting accolades ever since, David continues to serve as partner and Lead Designer at Gus*

I'm still modeling the space, awaiting other furniture pieces so I can't tell yet if it makes the perfect end table. However it's really nice. I put in a highpower multi-color LED bulb and it emits a softly muted but powerful glow. I imagine they needed a strong plastic to support the alleged 200Ibs it can hold, but the light it emits isn't perfectly uniform. You'll see ripples where the plastic is thicker andor thinner. My honest impression is this it's a one of a kind piece, but a tad over-priced. $325 is definitely reaching, but hey, this is America. If you have disposable income or a keen sense of style then have at it.

This was my second light cube. My first, which I've had since 2006, is still going strong and looks as good as new, so I can vouch for the light cube's durability. The plastic doesn't discolor with age, and it's very easy to clean. It's also VERY sturdy. You can stand on it, sit on it, toss it around -- this thing is very tough. Not to mention attractive, bright, and cleverly designed. It's a winner.
Works with modern LED lighting soft light

It's great, as expected, only thing better would be a dimmer control which would turn this into ultra sexy soft light box. After all that what it is, a light box that doubles as a end table. If they wanted to get really smart they would allow cube face projections to surface. Now that would be amazing. But, it is as noted, and I might buy it again for a different room. Pros: There is no assembly, you put in a bulb. Cons: cost, s/b less.
Use it with Hue lights for an awesome effect!

We bought some Philips Hue lights and were looking for the perfect lighting solution to put them in. These Light Boxes are great! With the Hue bulbs in them we can change the scheme to suit our mood. The boxes themselves are sturdy and of a high quality

I'm so happy with my light box. You can use it as a coffee table as a little puff and the light makes a nice warm atmosphere

More sophisticated in person than the photo shows.

Love this product! Is as advertised. Simple, sturdy, perfect dimensions for my use. It really is sturdy enough for seating and also serves as a side table to set a drink on. I put a very low (40) watt bulb inside as I wanted ambiant lighting. p.s. The cat seems to approve as well as he sits very happily atop on a regular basis. (attracted by the slight warmth of the bulb Im assuming.)
