Winner of 3d-printed lamp for FOC Talents 2010-Q3 assignment
While searching for organic forms in nature, I was looking at how plants work.
I wanted to find rather systems than shapes to copy. One basic rule is that nature doesn't create a straight line - human does. Sometimes plants work seemingly mathematically and usually they repeat themselves. They multiply, for example mushrooms have their networks underground or the same type of trees create forests.
Like nature, 3d-printing is at its best in using organic forms. It builds the strongest and most durable constructions. 3d-printing allows or almost pushes one to think and create like nature.
Cresco is Latin and means to multiply. My lightning designs take inspiration from nature and combine other ideas and forms together. It represents the variety in nature's organic forms.
