Lighting up the mood

Our concept started with creating a lamp that would lighten up the mood with its design. In order to do so, we had to choose a pattern that would do the job. At first we started with the bubbly effect, and then realized that having different sizes and different depths would enhance the result we are looking for. Therefore by creating 4 panels containing diverse forms, sizes and depths of bubbles and exposing them to light, we would be looking at a gradient amount of light changing from darker to lighter zones within the same board and coming close to a 3D effect.


We first started with pocketing a layer of 5 mm from the corian (12mm) panel, in order to reduce its thickness. And then, we proceeded to the roughing of the shapes with a 12 mm ball, then used a 6 ball for the parallel finishing (one at 45 degrees and the other at 135 degrees). We ended the procedure with engraving and then profiling with a 6mm flat.
