The outside of the Labyrinth lamp has a matte black surface. This is in strong contrast to the protruding openings where the golden surface of the inside is exposed. The observer can get a glimpse of the warm light reflected from the inside, but never see the light source itself. The pattern of the connected building pieces is repeated but complex; there is no obvious symmetry.
The Labyrinth is made of black polypropylene Polygo pieces with adhered gold-colored film on the inside.
