These are my first ideas for Exploring Light. The first one is already a little more concrete than the second one. The first idea is to create a new kind of construction light which is also adaptive to the normal household as an ambient light or a light object. Here you can see some pictures of my research about already existing LED construction lights.

It shall be multifunctional. I want it to be very flat so the benefit of working without electronic ballast can be seen. The following pictures show some first ideas about shape and function.

In my second idea I consider the idea of physical experiments. I want to design a light which includes a physical experiment such as the double slit experiment or the Tyndall effect.

In my opinion it’s really interesting to combine natural sciences with design. It can be an exciting symbiosis. I also do research about cooling bodies. It’s really important for the design process and it can be the main part of the design itself.
