poetic design, lighting + reading
At first time that i start to design the lighting. I remind that people usually using the lights when they reading a book. so i thought light and reading are inseparable. And then I imagined the scene that I reading books surrounded by huge amounts of bookshelves with this BookLight.
Defining new concept and creation idea is most my favorite part in design process. But for me as a student , technical part is the most hardest part. Concerning that what kinds of technologies can be applied in design is always makes me hard. and Even if no matter how technology advances, struggling in design process between engineers and designers will continue even after a few year.
