A Torii is an instantly recognizable Japanese symboll and takes the shape of a gate. Inspired by this, we created the shape of our lamp. Recreating a feeling of walking through a gate, because of its smaller space in the middle of the design. The symmetry, combined with the shadows and geometry, are key in our lamp.
This project, designed by David Robayo and
Gabriela Beek, is developed during our studies in Product Design, in Instituto Europeo de Design (Barcelona, Spain).
The goal was designing a lamp with the use of the laser cutter. Using a laser cutter, allows us to create complicated and interesting shapes, when realizing products.
