MEASURING METHOLOGY This lamp was photographed from two planes. the top plane and the fronal plane. there was no need to take another shot from the right plane since it is a spherical object. The measurements were taken using a measuring tape. This measurments were later checkes by the given measuremnts in the official Ikea webpage. Ă˜ 460mm

The form of this lamp is something non-conventional. It has a special form to it. This lamp uses the position of the plaps/scales of the lamp. The changing position and angle of the flaps trick the viewer into seeing curve. This is why the lamp is described more as an spherical object rather than a poity/sharp object. This effect is similar to a paraboloid shape which uses lines to create curves
The unfloded flap looks like a regular shape, therefore it is a very natural shape to the eye. When folded, the scales transform from a triangle with rounded edges into an uneven oval. In this position it is easier to overlay the scales of the lamp, giving it a bigger volume, creating lots of positive sapce.
THREE FACED VIEW FOR FOLDED SCALE Scale 1:2
UNFOLDED SCALE Scale 1:2
I started with the base a simple circle, two closed shapes surfaced with the loft comand and then extruded.
The second phase was to model the junction between the top and bottom frames. this was done using curves and later gruping them to use the surface and extude commands. The handles where added later in an venly spaced manner.
Finally the Top part was modeled in the same way as the first one. the details (image of the left) were placed using similar techniques discussed before. After all pieces were ready, the model was assembled and rendered.
RECONFIGURING MODEL I decided to base this model in a more self suporting, sceletal design, like the internal structure from the â€œLotus Lampâ€? using the slotting technique. This arragement gives the impresion of negative space into the object.
RECONFIGURING MODEL MAKING PROCESS This structure has a waffle structure which is perpendicular. This adds to the element of organization since it looks clean and minimal. each piece consists in a simple 90 degree fold as shown above, then cutting the sections to make the insertion holes. This simple design was able to hold itself using lightweight structural materials(ex. paper).
Sketch Design #1 layered passive protection armour
How does this respond to your personal space? This Vertical Stacked layers form the zone of personal space. The layers are separated, this helps the user keep contact with the enviroment. If the user starts feeling unconfortable, it is possible to flip in coordination with a corner, blocking all contact with the surrounding events. 10

The sloting technique provides the idea of little spikes, ensuring the idea of “don’t invade my personal space” 11
Sketch Design #3 Harmful armour, unrespectful
How does this respond to your personal space? This design blocks your personal space in an aggressive way. The spikes, placed with a sloting technique, are used to alert and â€œdefendâ€? the users personal space. The transition from rectangles to triangles helps mark the harm of the triangles, compared to the defensive rectangle platings.
