(5.5″x5.5″x14″) Laser cut, mahogany stained, birch plywood (2 layers); honey caramel swirl patterned, stained glass; 1/2″ thick, solid walnut base; lamp parts. – 2012.
The Hive table lamp was designed using various plugins for Sketchup and drafted the hard way (prior to parametric modeling). It was cut using a Full Spectrum laser cutter provided by local maker space, LVL1. The original base was handcrafted from walnut with mitered corners verses the box (finger) joints of the standard, laser cut versions.
“Hive” has now been recreated fully parametrically with Grasshopper for Rhino, allowing a wide array of customization. Note, the new standard base design (not shown) is fabricated from cut birch plywood as seen in the other examples through-out the site.
