RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
In optics, caustics are light rays reflected or refracted by a curved transparent surface into another surface. Rippling caustics are commonly formed when light shines through waves on a body of water. In order to emulate the moving light effect required, the designer observed throughly the phenomenon under bridges, sides of boats and swimming pools. Experimentation followed with plastic bottles, glass and acrylic. Defining also quantity and intensity of light sources to find the right effect.

CHALLENGE:
The challenge was to create a lamp that emulates sunlight reflected on water, without it. This effect can be created with projections but to prevent the shadows of people it is necessary to reduce the distance between source and target to prevent it. After several tests, we concluded a cylinder was the right shape to work with. The round surface would repeat itself turning on its central axis, giving continuity. A glass cylinder with an irregular surface like moving water surface was designed.
