MODL

MODL  (modular lighting)  is a system of tiles that can be arranged into what is needed or desired by the final user.  The form derives itself from micro biology, yet remains ubiquitous enough that each member of it’s audience can see something different.  What one person sees as a jelly fish, another may see as ice.  The Layers and 4 pronged sides add to the chaotic look of reproducing bacteria.

Monolith Revisit

April 15, 2010 at 7:34 pm (Uncategorized)

After a look at what the first rendition on monolith was, I began to explore what it could become.  While the first version of the lamp was over the top and the metaphor was too obvious.  It was with this in mind, that I approached the next attempt.  The goal being to create a lamp that hinted at an industrial and raw aesthetic without becoming niche and cliche.

Without the direct link to the people of a loft environment like the last light, it was possible to also explore the social structures that surround the light. The white and lighter concrete base hint towards a new movement in recent industry, the “green” movement.  This lamp, representing industry, is white to reflect a cleaner and more responsible approach to production.

Physically the lamps three sources are positioned to light an entire studio apartment via refection and refraction on the floor, ceiling, and walls.
