Cactus is the first lighting in the series “Bending light”.The emphasis of the design is how light could be made to travel and change direction, essential bending the beam of light.
Cactus is an elegant table light that challenges the common perception that light travels in a straight line. It provides ambient light as well as, focused directional beam useful for indirect lighting. Using a minimum of materials and components, it is surprisingly simple but provides a spectacle rarely found in such an everyday domestic lighting product.
Light travels from a light source embedded in a small base through optical quality, precisely bent, transparent acrylic rods and eventually culminates in a bright beam. Modularity allows for creation of different structures as per the users needs.
Part of the project was also to create a brochure or advertisement for the lamp.
