Lux

(2018)

Lux is a luminaire designed for event tables. It provides a soft calming light for the users sitting around it. There is a slow fade that passes around all of the acrylic fins of Lux. All of the housing components for the base of this luminaire were designed to be injection molded, as this project was an introduction to design for manufacturing. 

The Design process

Sketching helped determine how the internal components would snap together, and how the acrylic fins would look.

Below are the internals with the arduino wired to the leds, the laser cut acrylic pieces, and the orthographic drawings of the final housing components.
