In this project we were working with plexiglass (methacrylate) and we focused on creating a lamp using the technique of ribbing.

We decided to explore the possible different connections between the elements of our lamp and keep the form relatively simple, having the external volume of a cube as abounding box and in its center a sphere that will provide the necessary space for the lamp. The general idea was to increase the complexity of the ribbing technique, using more than two different axises for the planar sections. In the process we realized the bending and breaking limitations of the material and the effect topology of objects has in contouring-ribbing objects.

Cutting surface = 5400 cm2 Material used = 3787,3 cm Waste Material = 1612,7 cm2 (29,86 %)
