For this project I had to create an interior lighting solution. I designed an interior pendant with a raw and flavoursome aesthetic. With the increase in apartment living, and subsequent decrease in outdoor yard space, I wanted to create a light that would encourage apartment dwellers to get back in touch with nature and back to the joys of home cooking. The pendant (in theory)operates with a dual lighting function- the top LED light mimics sunlight to nurture the herb planted below it. The lower LED light provides task lighting to the kitchen work space. The herb fronds actively shield the upper LED, which redirects and reflects the light, in turn creating drama and interest, as well as a unique illumination. I then built a 3D apartment to hang the lights in. My aim was to create a homey, intimate space that was well balanced and harmonious. I drew inspiration from current trends including biophilic design, organic shapes and "retreat style" living.
