First prototype

After creating some new shapes I finally found the way I want to design my lamp. One band of sheet metal formed to a “Z” holds the foam. I wanted to sew the foam onto the band of metal. That keeps the foam in shape. The shape will be produced by cutting the foam in a certain way. After heaps of different 3D shadows on the wall I figured out that a tunnel best demonstrates the 3D effect. Before I started building my lamp I built a first prototype of paper to obtain the right size of the lamp and to figure out the details.
