I am a junior in the Department of Furniture Design at Rhode Island School of Design, and have recently completed my first endeavor in lighting design. My untitled light is constructed of black walnut and aluminum tube, and accommodates a standard u-shape fluorescent light bulb, most commonly used in industrial settings. The materials are complimented by a simple, brushed nickel toggle switch and a black, braided, fabric cord. The entire piece is easily disassembled/reassembled, constructed with magnets and press-fit components. My intention is to juxtapose the overly luminous, unfriendly light with polished, elegant materials to create new associations and applications for fluorescent lighting.
