Lightbox
by Gus Modern

At A Glance:
Gus LightboxThe unique, luminous Gus Modern Lightbox casts a soft glow and offers multiple uses for the home or office. A perfect square made of roto-molded plastic, the Lightbox works as an accent table and floor light, and is even sturdy enough to be used as an occasional stool. Available in Frosted White. 60W bulb recommended (not included).

What's To Like:

  • The Lightbox is like a combination of minimalist art and ambient lighting principles. It's attractive and functional.
  • White plastic adds a bright, contrasting material touch to nearly any space, with the added benefit of its strong symmetry and blocky construction.

What's Not to Like:
If you like lamps that are shaped like, well, lamps, have a look at our other light fixtures.

The Bottom Line:
The Lightbox from Gus Modern is uncompromising in its modern stance, unflawed in its material construction, and attractive in an unorthodox way. Therefore, we love it.

  • Dimensions: 18" h x 18" w x 18" d
  • Convenient on/off foot switch
  • Opening on bottom of cube to access light bulb
  • Uses a 60W bulb

Truly Wonderful

By

This is used in a dark corner of our living room to add some light.

Pros - Very well made, beautiful diffused light, really a home run

Cons - No dimmer switch, just an on/off button

Service and delivery comments:

The Smart Furniture team is the most polite and customer oriented group I have ever come across. I will only purchase my furniture products from them. The best company I have ever dealt with in my life!

Nice glow

By 

from San Francisco

Verified Buyer

Comments about Gus Modern Light Cube Floor Lamp:

I use this as a bedside table, and prefer the glow of the light as opposed to harsh overhead lighting. It emits a nice warm light. The table is quite light, which is nice. I've also sat on it and it seems sturdy enough, if one wanted to use it for that purpose. The best design detail of this piece is that it's a seamless mold, and the style adds a modern touch to any space. The only reason I gave 4 stars is that I'm not that big a fan of the slightly grainy texture, and wished that it was a smooth plastic.

Service and delivery comments:

Packaged well.

Beautiful but $$$ plastic

By 

from Boulder, CO

Verified Reviewer

Comments about Gus Modern Light Cube Floor Lamp:

I'll be upfront: $325 for a hollow 18x18 plastic cube with a light socket (NO bulb!) and attached switch in it is pretty ridiculous. Some fancy plastic this is, I should mention that it's HDPE (#2) recyclable plastic, but it's plastic nonetheless.

Another thing I don't like about the box is how thin the plastic is. The Lightbox claims to withstand 150 lbs., but I wouldn't vouch for this. My wife is about 115 lbs. and she wouldn't sit on it, fearing she would break it. The surfaces are not flat but are slightly depressed at the center, as in if you were to put anything that rolls it will collect itself towards the middle. So the Lightbox barely passes as a side/end table or nightstand. So for the price and the thin, depressed plastic surfaces I subtracted 1 star from this Lightbox.

The rest of the 4 stars are for the Lightbox being a modern and strangely beautiful light. The plastic covering diffuse light extremely well (see photo). I previously purchased the Isabella Light but had to return it, because the tear-drop aluminum base was cool and sophisticated, but the plastic cylinder lamp shade was completely translucent. Switching the Isabella Light on I got a glob of a light bulb, not an actual light. On the other hand, I switch this Lightbox on and the ENTIRE thing glows. There's no bright glob, just a bright Lightbox that light up my entire entry way, which had been a black hole in the corner of my home until now. I use an LED bulb that shines like a 60W bulb but only uses up 9.5W.

So for beautiful light it is, I will tolerate the Lightbox's shortcomings. Good thing my keys don't roll.

      Comments about Gus Modern Light Cube Floor Lamp:

      I use mine as a bed side table... The soft light is great when you want low light in the room... This is my second light box from Gus Modern and the only issue is due to the age of the first one it has discolored a bit and the two don't really match... If they are turned on it is much harder to notice, but if they are off you can see it... I plan to remedy this by buying a third one... Thanks to Smart Furniture for the fast delivery and great customer service!

            Instead of going with traditional bedside tables for my nephew's room, I opt for these, and they are fantastic! I used led party bulbs that change color and he loves them. They serve as a lamp or night light.. I'm very happy this purchase.

              Comments about Gus Modern Light Cube Floor Lamp:

              The Gus Light Cube is fun, modern and practical. The plastic cube is strong. The unit works with a fluorescent bulb, and gives a nice ambient glow. Works well as a side table next to an easy chair, both in terms of providing light to read by and a place to put your coffee cup. The on/off foot switch is convenient. All in all, a well-designed and well-made product.

              Service and delivery comments:

              The light cube was well-packaged for delivery, and delivery time was as quoted by the vendor. We didn't have occasion to contact customer service. This was an efficient, straight-forward transaction.

                This light is fabulous. The material is dense and sturdy, the light output is just right for adding a glow where it is desired. Right now it sits under a glass top sofa table, behind a white sofa and between the living and dining/office area of my condo. I have a beautiful gold/orange art glass bowl on top of the light. Lovely. But I see many other used for it in the future. It will be magical as a little table for cocktails. For Christmas I will put a red bulb in it. Wonderful.

                  Casts a warm diffuse glow all around the room. Great with a plain white bulb for general lighting but also really great with colored fluorescent or incandescent bulbs. Sort of enigmatic -- people comment on it all the time. We liked ours so much we got a second one.

                      A:

                      That would depend on what type of bulb you bought to put in it. It calls for a 60W bulb but one is not included.
