What was your goal when you designed your award-winning product?
I wanted to design a lighting fixture by decomposing the spatial arrangement of tiny LED units, distributing them to optimise the diffusion of light and empowering each of them with complete independence from the others. For the arrangement of the light nodes I used parameters based on the Fibonacci sequence. A net of wires with a steel heart constitutes the structure that holds every LED node creating an X&Y-based mesh. Thus, it is possible to independently control each of the 120 LEDs.
