Card holders

We looked at a way to attach the cards on the lamp and it turned out we ould have much more possibilities if all the rads are attached separately. With this in mind we designed some card holders and they more »

Arm prototyping with Cards

The bendable structure will work fine so time to find a way to attach our cards to it. First test with one card. A little bit hard to insert the card. We will increase the spacing in the next test.

Arm tests Prototyping

As the polystyrene material was not durable enough we chose to continue with the wooden triplex (3mm). The bending is going very well but still not under control as it was with the ps structure. To get some control over more »

Test 1: bending mechanism Polystyrene (case7)

We made the support structure for the cards out of Polystyrene and did some test with it. For example, We variated the amount of cut-outs to see what happens. The strip angles are 2 and 3 degrees to obtain two more »

Movable leafarm

Some test to find a way to open the lamp. Test 1: trying to create a movable structure for the lamp arms. Test 2: Placing the nylon string as close as possible to the centre. We can see the “arm” more »
