Illumination From Waste

Semester 5, Allied


Light and illumination form an integral part of designing and creating a space amongst many other elements. Light plays a crucial role in achieving the required comfort for a user to perform their respective activities. The exercise aimed at exploring various typologies of spaces and their required lighting. It further explored various waste materials that potentially could be upcycled and reused, converting these materials into light fixtures for different contexts and user experiences. These designs were formed into prototypes that could be applied and used in a variety of spaces.

The idea was to generate artistic lighting that may enhance the ambiance of a space-based on its purpose. This light fixture is suitable for usage in both indoors and outdoors. Watchmaker sticks and discarded file cards were used as the materials. The materials allowed for the creation of a shape that is adaptive to every context and behaves accordingly. A romantic ambiance light on a beach, a chandelier at home, a street lamp, or a pair of hanging lights in a café, the light can be used in different places in different manners, to create an intimate atmosphere.
