Obrut light

I designed this light object with the idea to further integrate web2 based fabrication with my craft practice. The shade, base and fixture for the light emitter (LED) are all laser cut by Ponoko. I look forward to try a variety of materials for the base including acrylic using ‘iMacy’ colours, bamboo and metals. The shade is white felt or polypropylene.

The shade simply snaps into the base and forms a dome covering the warm-white 1 watt LED. A metal fixture holds the LED the switch and functions as cooling surface.

Environmental aspects of this object: The LEDs used are highly energy efficient and have an expected life span of about 5 years of continuous operation till reaching 70% of their original brightness. All parts can be dissembled for recycling.

    Cool design, I don’t remember seeing it in the showroom but I really like the design and simplicity of set-up!
