Cascading Shards

TYPE: INDOOR LIGHTING
MATERIAL: HARDWOOD + RESIN
DIMENSIONS: 40 x 140 x 40 (CM)

The piece was conceived in reference to the classic muqarnas element, but re-interpreted as a floating set of shards descending in succession. The design utilizes a set of varying angle cuts for each square wood unit to create a gradient of diamond-like elements cascading to describe a parabolic void.

A selection of the wooden shards are replaced by cast resin elements backlit by LED fixtures. The resultant light effect highlights the unique geometry of each row while translating them into a volumetric element glowing from within.

The composition as a whole can be hung in a corner or as a stand-alone object, perhaps originating from a larger logic but now set apart, a mere shard of a larger whole.

Manufacturing is done by laser-cutting and 3d-printing. Assembly is made possible using a set of snap-fit connectors.
