The Decimal Collection questions the vast capabilities of 3D printing and its relationship with the process of conceptualization regarding to lighting design. When speaking of new technologies for productions, there’s a dominant impulse to work with structures generated from mathematical algorithms to create compositions that couldn’t be fabricated through other processes.
Seeking a design proposal that agrees with future of illumination and spaces, the Decimal Collection takes a step back to analyze and control this impulse by identifying the elements that can generate a discourse beyond form. The objects of Decimal Collection combine cultural and technological factors to create lighting concepts trough signs related with the audience and space.
Decimal is the combination of two leading technologies, LED lighting and 3D printing, that together culminate in a unique proposal of luminaires, characterized by dynamism and constant evolution.
The Lamp .003 comes from the iteration of elegantly applied sections on a surface that evokes a technological and attractive present, while referring to objects from the past. It is composed by intersections of reticles that oscillate from a central axis from which they even split. When converging at a single point, a symmetry is generated. This screen becomes a soft point of light that makes evident the visual complexity of its texture.
Straight geometries presented in fabric, paper, and architectural structures to give volume to geometric planes. These line and form relationships give a feeling of sudden mutation and volume expansion. The language, previously applied in a complex and laborious way to objects like paper lamps, blinds, accordions, or cantoya balloons, is appropriate for 3D printing to create a modern, elegant, and classic piece.
