    This modern light is an example of an ideal construction design.  Developed through contour, and digitally fabricated through Rhino, this ellipsoid can be repeatedly and readily constructed and assembled.  When working with Laser Cutting technologies, the potential is limited only by imagination and innovation.  However, the challenge is how to use it innovatively.  At its essence, a lamp is a creative obstruction of a light source, defined by its workmanship, design and function.  Working properly, light and structure should function collaboratively.  Designed around this concept, this light orchestrates the above qualities. 
               
    Laser Cutting birch plywood leaves the edges charred and darkened.   This perceived flaw can be conceptually viewed as intrinsic.  When a plane obstructs a light, its edges will perceive to darken.  Using each piece as a plane, the charred edges can be aligned to show only on the exterior, allowing light to pass between each slate.  Thus, creating this natural phenomenon.  Each piece, being finished in amber, allows light to radiate and enhance off of each surface in a unique illuminating experience.  Its pragmatic use meets no boundaries.  It functions as a floor lamp, a desk lamp, or can even be hung from above.  Digital fabrication and rapid prototyping allow for this design to be efficiently manufactured and reproduced accurately.  Constructed with slip joints, the lamp can be easily taken apart and reassembled.  Thus, making it the ideal lamp for any environment.
