The aim was to achieve channelized light through different extents of protrusions and their angles. Edges of the protrusions were juxtaposed randomly to achieve a dramatic effect of light. This and the varying thickness of the surface create different intensity of light.

The lamp form is an inspiration from the sea urchin shells.
