About me I am Qiongxin Fan, 20 years old chinese girl who has been living in Barcelona since 2004. I am a very curious especially in knowing the functionality of objects and the fabrication process. I have discovered that design techniques take an indispensable part of my work. According to my colleague's review, I am always asking everybody the same question every time that they show me a project: “Why did you do this? Which is the intention?�. I have to say that it is truly me. In my point of view, as designers, we have the responsibility to know what we are doing in each moment and why we are doing this as they will have an impact on this world. In my opinion, designing is a powerful tool which not everybody has access, and so I will say that we must manage to contribute to this planet in a positive way.

VOLTA Volta is a lamp with a design inspired by Casa Gomis (La Ricarda), which has been visited during the project and is where the photos of the prototype were made . It is designed primarily to give the open-air swimming pool some atmosphere outside of Casa Gomis. The shape is a representation of the Catalan vault used on the roofs of the house. The lamp stands out in the simplicity of the shape. The entire inner part of the curve is covered by a flexible LED screen that gives a diffused light, and in the base is located the rechargeable battery. To turn it on, it only takes one touch with the hand at the top of the curve.
