Steel, acrylic luminaire - An early design


I began designing custom LED lighting controllers around 2010, and developed a number of different luminaire designs. This one used Phillips Rebel Lumiled early high-power, low color temperature LED package. Back around 2010, high power white LED base lighting was still in its infancy.

Using a capacitance based touch interface, one could dim the lamp on and off by touching the steel base.

I weathered the cold-rolled steel enclosure in out in the elements of the Pacific Northwest for a natural patina.

The Luminous Rex Mission

My mission is to learn, create, and explore technology and art. By combining new and old technology and materials, both fabulous and disastrous results are made manifest. These pages are a light docementation of my process.
