Computer Aided Design : Solidworks
Wood Lathed Beech Lamp shape.
SolidWorks makes it easy for the designer to visualize and communicate a 3D concept. The designer can make changes to the design, validate the design against requirements, and prepare the design for production in manufacturing. “ Solid works gave me a real idea of how my lamp would turn out in terms of aesthetics and function. I could view it from different angles and change the materials of the product”.
Two Sourced ball and Socket joints. Polished brass brackets. Four Polished brass guarders. One Weighted Brass plate. Two wing nut bolts.
Components to final lamp.

Shape and Form
This was the most important aspect of design for me when making the lamp. I wanted the lamp to look like it flowed together as one form. (Influenced by Johan petter johanssonâ€™s lamp)
Development models and Close up of Final Outcome.
Research and influences Interested with lamps that had ball and socket joints as they seemed to have the most amount of variety in terms of heights and angle Positions.
