This is part of a semester project for a product design studio at the university. During this time, individual points-of-view were exchanged as inspiration; perspectives of young designers offered new solutions; and diversity of designs translated to new approaches. The project was looking for alternatives to standard products in the market. The studio worked within parameters: the designers get to choose the materials and components for their design but they must focus on the functionality of the fixture. The lightsource is limited to LED COB or Midpower LED. All individuals must respect the cooling terms and keep in mind that the reflectors and driver are the most effective accessories. The design proposals should propose something more, something different from the standard products in the retail segment. The design must adhere to high technicality requirements and lighting parameters. There is a minimal limit of the efficiency. On the other hand, the manufacturer’s idea is to have a middle-price-range product and not the cheapest one on the market. The design has to bring something different and interesting – a product for the future of lighting. But most importantly, the continuity of the manufacturer’s portfolio must be preserved.
