I wanted to create a new product with numerous uses in people's lives. It was based on the idea of a polymorphic object.The lamp size is 1500 x 1500 mm and it has a planar shape consisting of geometric elements, which is one of the foundations of formation. It can, either create an object, or serve as the foundation for its construction. Man has always aspired to the realization of life and its possibilities overcoming challenges and showing the limitless possibilities.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Full light with a lot of functions and methods of use. Unique mechanisms in the form of ball hinge with increased tilt angle. Ability to change the size of the object by adding and removing modular elements. Thanks to the hinges, you can set various shapes, twist into a tube, roll into a sphere to create a pyramid, create and transfigure the landscape and architectural interior elements. It's self-sufficient. You can put or hang it anywhere you want.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The lamp can be used in the comfort of your home and on the street. It can serve as a floor lamp, chandelier, wall lamp, table lamp.
Floor lamp for him enough to twist into a tube, or use your imagination to make unique shapes and guards on the floor, and also with other methods of use.
Thanks hinges light well and lock its position remains unchanged.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project began in October 2014 in Tomsk, Russian Federation
FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Turning work with aluminium to create hinges plus LED bulb from any manufacturer. All materials are available and easy to handle, without harm to health. Production may be serial and individual. Also hinges can be cast from aluminum half-forms that make production cheaper.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Plexus is a lamp composed of an heat-treated alloy of aluminum with copper, magnesium, manganese. Specificity of material provides the lightness and durability that makes the lamp mobile and durable. System of ball hinges is the main advantage of this product. They were specifically designed to be inclined 90 degrees and rotaded 360 degrees, that allows it to attach multiple, stable form. Since it has the flexibility it can accopmany any architectural objects and works of art (sculptures, maps). You can remove and add hinges and diode point, making it bigger or smaller. In the luminaire there are 100 LED bulbs, it gives power-saving. The lamp can work on the battery, which makes it independent from sockets.
Lamp, Hinge, LED, Multifunctional, New
The device is created on the basis of a framework for creating geometric form. Like a bandage impregnated with plaster, it can repeats the outlines of any object in the same network and can take and fix different geometry.
In the beginning I knew about the complexity of the task (creation of a modern, unique element of interior space with light function, as well the high cost and the system works), but in the process some available materials were chosen and designed using joints with a slope of 90 degrees.
