Junone Lamp by Alan Aronica

Home > Winners > #123885


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Junone

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Lamp

INSPIRATION:
Just like the shift from tempera to oil painting during Renaissance empowered a new generation of painters to express their creativity in unprecedented ways, the shift from subtractive to additive manufacturing enables us today to explore shapes that could simply not be fabricated before. With Junone I aim to challenge the dogma of how a lamp should look like and educate the public on the novel possibilities that 3D printing can offer to create a new generation of luxury goods.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Junone is an exploration of the contrast arising from the juxtaposition of voluptuous organic shapes with sculptural tensions inspired by the aeronautical industry. Conceived to be architectural and yet suggesting a dynamic sense of directionality, Junone is made exclusively with 3D printed nylon infused with glass & 3D printed steel infused with bronze. Junone is part of a special series limited to only 10 pieces, each of which has a numbered label.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This is to all effects a functional lamp, operated through a traditional ON/OFF switch and powered through a power cord from a wall plug. The 4.5m power cord allows to reach even far away plugs. The LED lightbulb creates a warm and welcoming light without heating, and it is both dimmable and replaceable.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in January 2021 in Milan and finished in March 2021 in Milan.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Arts, Crafts and Ready-Made Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printing using PA12 Nylon 40% Infused with Glass Beads; Binder Jetting 3D Printing using Stainless Steel 40% Infused with Bronze Matrix.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
W:200mm x D:220mm x H:210mm; Lighting: 5 Watt LED; 4,5m power cord (CEI 23-50 S11);

TAGS:

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Having had previous experiences both with 3D printed nylon/glass & 3D printed steel/bronze, I had a clear idea of how the materials would behave. I started by recreating an accurate digital model of the lightbulb and power cord, then I digitally sculpted the lamp's body around them. Once the design was locked, I recreated a 3D polygonal model accounting for the different physical properties of the materials as well as the different tolerances of the manufacturing techniques. After the 3D printing process, I hand-assembled and tested the lamp extensively.

CHALLENGE:
I believe in taking only the resources that are really needed, that is why I work exclusively with additive manufacturing. One of the challenges in the 3D modeling phase was to create a 3D printable empty shell, to use the least possible amount of material without compromising neither the structure nor the aesthetic. Another challenge was to take full advantage of the reflective properties of metal, designing the interaction of light with the object from every angle. This was achieved by forecasting the light pathways through photorealistic renders.
