This 4th year project had a simple premise: to design any light fixture you wanted. I was inspired by the effect of putting an object in the middle of 3 mirrors, each mirror being at right angles to each other. A 1/8 object becomes a 3D form in this setup.
 I thermoformed a 1/8 sphere and placed it into a corner mirror.
 I thought the effect would be enhanced with a larger clear sphere around it.
 I then 3D modelled and CNC'd a larger thermoform mold to create this larger transparent 1/8 sphere.
 The framing had a slight recess to keep the mirror flush.
 The effect I desired was achieved and I was happy with the results. An atom-like shape occurred which was somewhat of an unexpected but welcomed outcome.
 And why not have a shot with me in it.
