Now the crunch mode has begun: Being well organized is the name of the game. Within the last weeks I ordered all necessary materials, cut the salt stones in the stone mason´s workshop and shaped them into the form of a cylinder. Now I´m constructing the cooling element, which is, since the last presentation, going to be a part of the design, i.e. the cooling element amounts to half of the lamp (as you can see in the picture) instead of a metallic cylinder. The cooling is going to be built out of anodized aluminium too.

The combination of a natural part (salt) with technical aspects (such as the LED and of course the cooling) makes it more exciting. Likewise it intensifies the favoured distance between the old and the new salt lamp.
