LIGHTING DESIGN

SEAWEED INSPIRED PENDANT LIGHT

This lighting design project began by drawing inspiration from my childhood; spending time playing nearby the sea, on the West Coast of Scotland. Abstracting the complex organic seaweed form, I developed three continuous shapes through sketching and digital modification, to form the main body of the light.

Layering CNC milled plywood shapes to create three structures, each not exceeding (1000 x 600 x 42 mm). The wooden forms, were offset allowing an indent in the centre of each shape to be lined with an LED strip, projecting light from the curvature of the shapes. (Fitted with screw eyes and  hung with fishing wire).
