Authors’ Comment

EN_The Aggregate Cells luminaire combines computational design, digital fabrication means and subjective aesthetics. The intent was to explore methods of aggregation of cells with a regular repetitive geometry that are set free by deformation. The shape, material and method of materialization bear the fingerprint of the digital environment. Using a parametric design software allows customization of the form for each user and the generation of the fabrication information for each unique node. The algorithm allows the direct transfer of the information in the digital model to numerical controlled machines for the production of each individual articulation. Components are made by 3D printing in ABS plastic and are manually assembled using brass pipes and accessories.
