"Branch" 1.0  Laser Cut Lamp

(5.5″x5.5″x14″) Laser cut, chocolate stained, birch plywood; white swirl patterned, stained glass; lamp parts – 2013.

The “Branch” lamp is crafted from laser cut birch plywood and stained glass.  The design is generated parametrically using Grasshopper for Rhino and based on a Voronoi diagram formed from random points.  Here, the pattern hosts three levels of cell sizes, corner radii, and wall thicknesses to invoke an organic network of branching hierarchies.
