FREE Labs Project: Moonlight

Postby RebeccaJ » Tue Dec 18, 2018 10:03 am

Hi All,

As you may be aware we have introduced some new faces to the Labs Projects, and the last one for this year comes from David, he brings you the ‘Moonlight’ lamp. This is his Christmas project for 2018 and is to be followed up with many more exciting ‘In the Labs’ models throughout 2019.
This project utilises the (ubiquitous) LED lighting strip and super magnets with an option to combine wood and CNC Acrylic machining or, if available, alternative laser technologies to manufacture this Artefact.
It was inspired by images, generally seen during the Christmas period, depicting silhouetted shapes against a moon backdrop.
Importantly, it was envisaged the ‘Moonlight’ lamp could be utilised throughout the year and not just during the festive period. Therefore, an aesthetically pleasing, shape has been incorporated into the base of the lamp so that any wood, that suits the décor, can be used, along with an opaque Acrylic material, giving an unobtrusive ambient light to compliment any room.
The wooden base also has an alternative flat surface where, scenic, acrylic silhouettes can be attached, using magnets, transforming the lamp into a Christmas, Halloween or other specially themed occasion.
Other silhouettes can be applied to the Acrylic element of the lamp, using magnets, enabling interchangeable themed templates which can be very quickly attached.

Enjoy! and once again Merry Christmas!
