Fallen Star

ARCHI 120 // 2012 FALL

Individual Design Project

Critic: Professor Joe Valdez 

FALLEN STAR is a table lamp that is inspired by the bouncing motion of a shooting star. Triangular planes are used to represent the crisp and sharp path of a star traveling across the night sky. These triangle planes are in different sizes and are tilted in different angles, this can display the gradients of light on its surface; since each plane has its own size and angle, a variety of light conditions can be shown throughout the surface of the lamp. The lamp is being designed as a decoration rather than a source of light, as its main purpose is to express the beauty of light gradients—as beautiful as shooting stars. This lamp was voted best design by the entire class including 50 students and professors.
