Lava Lamp

‚ÄčAcademic | Spring 2015 | Richard Tursky


The focus of this lamp was the exploration of various digital fabrication strategies, including the laser cutter, the CNC mill, 3D printer, and vacuum form. A secondary focus was the completion of a design construction across physical and temporal constraints with an emphasis on problem-solving and alternative material methods. For example, this lamp utilizes binder rings as a hinge joint and a 3-D printed spacer for the LED light. The lamp was milled out of plywood at varying levels, creating a gradient of shadow and light.
