The Faceted lamp is a tactile and sensory experience of otherwise mundane material such as PVC. PVC sheets are first cup up and then stitched together piece by piece meticulously to form a mosaic of repetitive cellular structure that results in to a tessellated geometrical form.
The faceted texture creates a scintillating light sculpture not only when it is switched on but also adding visual delight to a space when switched off. Light permeates facets where they have been stitched and have stretched due to tessellations revealing geometrical lines of construction. The Faceted lamp draws from a modular structure, which allows for the construction of larger structure for public spaces. The design involves integrating material integrity and longevity using basic construction principles and applications to find new means of expression. The approach was to create something playful enough to introduce curiosity with textures almost to make one tempted to touch it.
