David Podsiadlo  

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.

About the Manufacturer

With Gus* Modern, the focus is on making great design practical. Designer David Podsiadlo takes his inspiration from everyday objects and industrial forms. With a nod to mid-century Modernist designs, the Gus* Design Group has created furniture, accent pieces, and accessories that are elegantly functional.

Based in Toronto, Gus* Modern introduced their first sofas and lighting in 2000. The line was well received and was soon being sold to prominent design retailers across the United States and Canada. With key pieces like the Jane Sofa and the Delano Chair, sofas, sectionals, and chairs are the heart of the Gus* collection.

The line was soon expanded to include coffee tables, accent tables, rugs, ottomans, and home accessories. With the same simple design aesthetic, and taking a special interest in innovative use of materials like acrylic and stainless steel, these accent pieces complete the Gus* Modern line. Combining quality materials and minimalist design, David Podsiadlo has designed an award-winning line to outfit a contemporary living space in style.

Its nice..

from NY, NY – Verified Buyer

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.

Works with modern LED lighting soft light

from Austin, TX – Verified Buyer

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.

Terrific cube

from New York, NY – Verified Buyer

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.

Great conversation piece

from San Jose, CA – Verified Buyer

Love this cube. I use it as a side table with a large clear vase on it and colored glass balls in the vase. They are lit up by the light in the cube. Love the effect. The cube has a great glow. I wish somehow the light inside was rechargeable so I could use it in the middle of the room without having the power running across the room, but it's fine right now against a wall. Very cool. Pros: Unique. Well priced Cons: Power cord runs across room if using as a coffee table

Very cool

from Louisville, CO – Verified Buyer

I like it a lot. I have tried a variety of bulbs, including colors, but settled on a 40w equivalent LED with shot natural hue. I have a decorative object on top that the light accentuates nicely. Pros: No assembly, what you see is what you get. Sturdy. Cons: Price is a bit steep

Use it with Hue lights for an awesome effect!

from Chicago, IL – Verified Buyer

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

This magical cube is awesome! It is playful and very cool. People of all ages love it because it is so different from traditional lighting. The light is perfect when you are watching television or just chatting. It can be used as a table or chair as well. You won't be disappointed.

Love it!

from Boston, MA – Verified Buyer

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.)
