WHAT

Three identical portable lights made out of walnut and SLA prints, composed of LEDS and reed switches. 

Why

To explore the interaction of a portable light in an irregular vessel, where its form drives the user to hold it with care and sensitivity.

How

The walnut bowl was turned on the lathe, after glueing three planks of wood into a block, and sanded to be soft to touch. The SLA print is a surface CAD model, with the interior adjusted for the light to travel in an upwards gradient. The inside is composed of four LEDs, where the circuit is formatted to trigger either one LED for low brightness, or three LEDs for high brightness through the use of parallel circuiting, reed switches, and magnets.
