Ideation Review Reviewing my ideation process from the previous module, I took the initial inspiration from the crosssection view of a red cabbage. From there I tried playing with the geometry of the Fibonacci spiral which was evident in the pattern, and eventually came up with three basic concepts or recipe in making my final model: 01. Spiral 02. Suspended 03. Fold 04. Collaboration of all the above techniques.

Digitizing the Model Digitizing exactly from the plasticine model, without precise scale.
This model presents many flaws: - It is a polysurface; cannot be panelled entirely. - The surfaces are too perfect. - Presents unnecessary surface (spirals) that makes panelling difficult.
Concept Idea #1
The red cabbage has a unique scaling pattern which goes bigger as it goes around upwards. This particular movement in the cabbage has inspired me to take its concave shape and applied it to my lantern surface.
Model Developmen Process
Concept Idea #2 As similar to other flowers, cabbage also has many layers on top of each other, which can be seen in the picture. Each of these layers make up spirals which goes around from the center in circular motion.
RENDER VIEW INNER LAYER
RENDER VIEW OUTER LAYER
#1 DEFAULT TRIANGULAR Outer layer: Pyramid 1 (default 3D pattern) Variable offset border Inner layer: Triangular (default 2D pattern)
CUSTOM 2D PANEL
#2 SPIRAL and OVERLAP
Outer layer: Custom 3D Panelling (Triangular shaped that overlaps each other) Inner layer: Custom 2D Panelling To make bigger triangular panels
PANEL MOVEMENT The panels are deliberately placed in a spiral movement (by manually moving the points)
#3 LAYERS and OVERLAPS
Outer layer: Custom 3D Panelling (Triangular shaped that overlaps each other) Points are arranged manually to create the overlapping panels protruding outwards. Custom 2D Panelling To make bigger triangular panels
Inner Layer DIFFUSED LIGHT
The end of the inner layer is a trimmed extrusion which functions to diffuse the light that will be placed in that particular area.

Outer Layer OVERLAPPING
UNROLLING I choose the third panelling form because it sums up my development design idea quite well. The overlapping panels create the effect of layering, which is also apparent on the cabbage.
1 1 The hollow section at the back of the pattern made it quite impossible to glue each strip on top of each other
PROTOTYPE FLAWS 1 2
SOLUTION: redo the panelling with an additional face at the back (or below) The folding of each pyramid is different. Marking it to score will only allow one side folding, which will make the folds easily unattached. SOLUTION: Label the foldings with dotted lines to avoid tearing.

LIGHT EFFECTS PRECEDENT STUDY The overlapping panels create a diffusing light effect that is apparent in the picture (with the gradient colors spreading out)
In this experiment, I tried putting my current prototype, which is the outer skin of the lantern, on top of a lamp and it produce a natural layered lighting effect which I was initially going for.
