I designed this lighting system to easily transform for different situations. It uses two task lights (I like these LED ones from Hykolity) which are suspended from the ceiling. A counterweighted system of paracord and pulleys allows these lights to be lifted up and down with ease. In the raised position they provide excellent coverage and brightness for daily desk work while staying out of the way. The lowered position creates a very bright and shadow-free space perfect for film, photography, or any other situation that requires superb lighting.
...It's also really fun to use and looks dope ;)
