SCONCE

WINTER 2008

During a Digital Fabrication course at the University of Washington’ College of Built Environments, a project of the course was the design of a multiple jointed product to be laser cut.  I have done several wood projects and joinery was the most difficult of those projects.  I thought that having a machine cut the joints would be a fast and efficient use of the technology.

When designing the sconce,  the use of digital rendering allowed me to imagine how the light would respond to the different shapes and designs.

The sconce has a total of 55 joints and took only minutes to cut.  The sconce was made from recycled particle board and was easily put together after being cut.
