As the project is constantly progressing I had to decide on which direction I want to lay my focus.
I did quite some research on thermochromatic pigments and realised how big the scope of use for those materials can actually be. Therefore I would like to push my first concept over the others.
I ordered samples of thermochromatic pigments and started to experiment. The basic idea is to create a strong symbolic meaning within the lamp. A (partly) black lamp body gets slowly dissolved by the light. Light and Darkness.

The crucial point will be conducting the thermal discharge of the LED cooler through a transparent material such as glass or acrylic glass.
I will keep experimenting!
