Cells

with Stijn De Mil (FabLabXL) and Elise Elsacker (Magma Nova)

The design for the Cells is meant to push the boundaries of additive manufacturing. Its' ultra-fine wall thicknes (0.5mm) allows light to seep through, broken apart in splendid facets by the wall pattern. The pattern follows a simple Voronoi scheme, which is then wrapped around a tubular geometry. Special attention is given to  the cell definition; the edge width, the recess, and the valley detailling. The object is meant for use both on ceilings and standing lamps, and has an integrated socket connection. The extra ceiling piece is still in development.
