a light fixture designed as part of an epic studio collaboration among architecture, interior, and industrial design students.  made solely of frosted acrylic glass to pursue a diffused glowing effect, this pendant became realized through digital modeling and laser fabrication within the realm of architectural and industrial design.

sixty-two individual acrylic slices fit into three slotted rings to actualize the form of the pendant, constructed first through digital prototyping.  the radial nature of the pendant allowed for a simple fabrication process, while offering the opportunity for a complex ridging effect to flow along each slice of the lamp.
