This design project centered on creating a lamp that could be cut on a laser cutter, shipped flat, and then put together by the end consumer. My design is based around the number 3. There are 3 pieces that interconnect to create the shade, 3 base plates that hold the shade in place and connect to the lighting element, and 3 connector pieces that hold everything together. This design negates the need for mechanical fasteners, as it is held together by both slots and natural tension. My decision to combine the malleable plastic of the shade with the stained birch plywood is meant to offer a modern and comfortable element to my design.
