GARLIC LIGHT

The client for this project was an art museum cafe. I wanted to create something that would be a unique feature within the cafe, but also something that represented art. I was inspired by a variety of artists such as Dennis Wojtkiewicz and Gustav Klimt. Through this project I was able to learn how to make a cast and create a light from fibre glass and resin.

SOFTWARE USED Photoshop, Indesign, resin casting.

I was inspired by the form of a garlic for my design considering the natural textures that the skin of the garlic has, creating an interesting lighting feature. The design featured gold leaf inspired by Gustav Klimt giving the design new textures. My light was featured in a lighting exhibition, it was amazing to see my light up and working for the public to see. This project allowed me to develop lots of new skills such as physical workshop skills which allowed me to gain a deep understanding and appreciation into the time and process of design and manufacturing. It also developed my drawing skills learning how to hand draw a variety of technical drawings including plans, sections and perspective.
