The economics of scale
The lamp measures 30,5 by 7,5 meters and the sheer size of the lamps made it unlike any other lighting project we had worked on. It came with its own sets of challenges and possibilities. Extruded aluminium quickly came up as a good candidate for the task providing a accurate, detailed and lightweight solution.
The extruded aluminium allows for long sections, reducing seams and keeping the number of struts needed to a minimum. The profile allows for multiple functions to be embedded in the design.
The clean outside hides a section constructed of layers, ensuring an even light distribution, structural integrity and calm aesthetics.
