The type of research used for this design was rather philosophical than technical. The objective was to research the view of different faiths of the existence of the greater power, and how can this be communicated into a minimalist design.
Being a minimalist design, the greatest challenge was to get the scale and proportions right, as to maintain the perfect balance and be able to communicate the philosophical concept behind the lighting
