Light Knit

Light Knit

Light Knit is a 3d printed lampshade made from responsibly sourced recycled PET. New aesthetic possibilities of the translucent material are explored through a weaving technique that generates a jagged pattern of reflections and refraction, thus rendering an almost immaterial property to the object. The weaving technique plays an important structural role as well by reinforcing the slightly brittle recycled plastic.

The design process involves custom generative software tools developed in-house that negotiate between the aesthetics of the object and the limitations of FDM 3d printing technology while generating precise machine instructions for fabrication.
