Lumino shines a light on students
Students of the Bartlett UCL MSc Light and Lighting graduate programme proudly presented their luminaire designs to LUMINO. The nine-week design project was supported by LUMINO supplying ColorCORE® LED samples and giving feedback in tutoring sessions hosted by Tad Trylski and Kevin Mansfield of Bartlett UCL.
As part of the course, six teams of students were briefed to design a wall luminaire to meet very specific technical and aesthetic requirements for an existing building.
Lumino Design Director, Jago Wickers said
"It was a pleasure to see such innovative designs evolve during this project. The students worked in six teams and it was clear they put in considerable effort to interpret the brief and apply their creative problem solving skills. Despite the same starting point, we saw six quite unique and diverse design solutions take form and it was refreshing to see some carefully considered physical models being produced by hand rather than a reliance on 3D modelling software alone."
Christophe Veaux and Anggia Purbowati presented their team's work as pictured above. Their circular luminaire design incorporates LUMINO VectorFLEX LED tape providing light onto a vacuum formed, domed reflector made from high diffused-reflectance material.
Samer Haddad and Sara Ramos, pictured above, showed their work alongside team members Lukas Klimcak and Agathe Pharel. Their innovative design was constructed from sustainably sourced plywood pieces, individually laser cut to a precise template and assembled to form a ‘waffle’ structure. The luminaire housed twin ColorCORE Engines positioned to project light at specific angles to meet the requirements of the design brief.
Hannah Murphy and Maria Alves, pictured above, presented their elegant wall light and explained the sophisticated control system allowing it to react to movement, dim and change from uplight to downlight automatically. The design used warm white ColorCORE LEDs and was constructed from a mix of complementary materials including glass, steel and wood.
Steven Krueger explained the Modrian inspired design he developed with colleague Ruozhao Li.
A different approach using light and shadow was presented by Junming Zhao and Shaokun Chen (pictured).
