Beta was a pendant light designed to combat the manufacturing issues faced in molecular, or parametric modelling. The design follows on from my previous pendant light "Alga" with a similar exterior shell form. The two projects differ vastly due to their manufacturing processes. While the exterior shell of Alga was simply 3D printed, the exterior shell of Beta was produced with a revolutionary manufacturing method that I devoted months to develop.
The process involves vacuum forming a pre cut sheet of plastic over a male mold, combined with my own unique twists to dramatically decrease the manufacturing cost of this parametric form. Beta combines this revolutionary plastic exterior shell with a glass blown diffuser, brass oem parts and a contrasting black braided cord.
A combination of the "Beta" and "Alga" designs will be available for purchase in January 2015. Please contact me for further information.
