L33 Lamp by Boglárka Mázsi

DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
L33

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Lamp

INSPIRATION:
The base idea was to experiment with human sensation of the built environment and the modified light of it. Architecture surrounds us and we will be only able to observe it from some given perspectives. The same as the natural or artificial light coming through the architectural structures. Thus this, understanding the structure, and the complexity of the construction is an eternal demand in many human being. This is an ideal, functional and structural object to represent the basic concept.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Experimenting with structural elements and scales while the form and core material was inspired by - and based on - Japanese architecture in the sixties, an ambient light was born. Both the function and the turned over scale invites us to a new type of observation. The object was designed to ensure from each side a different structural view, light source cannot be seen from any side even if it’s moved around its axis. The lamp was fabricated from three different materials.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
L33 is a clean lined ambient lighting with an important aspect – the design should gently protect the eyes from the strong light source as well. The object was designed to ensure from each side a different structural view thus this the ambient and light effect can be changed time to time in the room. It’s easy to handle with a switch on mechanism. Despite of the long life LED stripes used as a light source the inside mechanism is still mountable.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in January 2014 – Budapest, Hungary – with a three month research period. Another three month spent with material and structural experiments and finally closed with three prototypes in July 2014.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Despite of the same form and basic structure, the three different material required fundamentally distinct technical solutions. The – fine grain and fibre forced - concrete version was casted in a special silicone mould, as it was the – epoxy resin mixed – stone imitation with a slight technical difference. Meanwhile the Plexiglas version was laser cut and fabricated with industrial circumstances. The blueprints and the core structure are designed to be adequate for all the three production methods.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Light source: 12V LED Strip, warm white Core material: Concrete / Plexiglas / Stone imitation Light source: replaceable 12V LED Strip, warm white Size: 320 x 170 x 320 mm

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
To fulfil the aim of my inspiration for all perspective it was not enough to observe the connections and proportional questions of architecture and the person, but it was also essentially important for the design process to exanimate the relationship between light and human beings. Furthermore to understand the physiological and physical impacts of light in its complexity.

CHALLENGE:
One of the most challenging part of the design process was to work with three different materials – concrete, Plexiglas, stone imitation – at the same time. Same wall thickness had been required from fundamentally different production processes and material attributions.

NAME:
Boglárka Mázsi

PROFILE:
This design was done as a final project for the Budapest Metropolitan University – Art Department on the faculty of Ceramics Design. The goal of the project was to broaden the possible material usage and stretch out the frames of the faculty. Designing a functional object which is based on plastic and basic silicate materials but not the classical ceramic ones, got to be the final solution.
