shiny honeycomb is a DIY lighting device made out of a laser cut structure, aluminum cooking containers that act as reflectors and standard light bulbs. The model showed here is cut in plexiglas 3mm. It could also be cut in 3mm dmf sheets. It has a modular architecture that allows for multiple configurations horizontally and vertically.
It is designed to be used as an urban plug in to personalize, customize or appropriate urban space. Ita
The project has been developed in a cooperative process by a team composed by VÃctor Arranz Torrego, Paula Garcia, Laura Gonzalez Malingraux and Oscar MiguÃ©lez FernÃ¡ndez with tutors Areti Nikolopoulou and Jose Perez de Lama at \"The commons factory :: plug ins at santa ana\" workshop, taking place october 18-25th 2010 at Absolut Lab [Fab Lab], Madrid, Spain
The device is a press fit system easy to assemble. It allow for multiple configurations.
The cutting files are designed for 810 x 600 mm plexiglas sheets to be cut with a laser cutter. Joints in the files consider the material lost by the laser cut [Epilog Legend Ext 36x24 50 watts]. They should be tested to check if it works in the same way with the laser cutter you might be using.
Aluminum containers and lighting fixtures are assembled after the structural pieces are put together.
Rhino and dxf files are cutting files.
[We will be uploading assembly drawings in the next days]
