1. Plastic | Foam | Lamp
My basic material and fabrication method was plastic and heating. First I was interested in heating PET, so that it can be moulded. After a while I found the PU Foam whose properties are very interesting: big expansion, hard, light and stable. With this foam I made a lot of experiments which helped me to find my final concept and project.

Computational Designs

3. First Ideas and Main Concept
First Ideas
My first idea was to combine the PU foam with fine textiles. To see how the foam penetrates the textiles I made various experiments: IMG_1242 IMG_1244 IMG_1282 Next, I was interested in how the foam would react in combination with a light bulb: IMG_1293 IMG_1310 The result was very positive – so I decided to make a concept for a foam-lamp. Concept My construction setup for the foam-lamp has three layers: 1. inner layer should be solid 2. the outer layer should show the structure of the foam (see the first 3D printouts) 3. the last layer is just for making the realization easier skizzen
4. Modelling and Fabrication process
First I created a 3D model of my idea which I tried to print on the 3D printer. 3d-render-lampensystem IMG_1615
The next step was to laser-cut my model step by step out of plexiglass and eventually glue the parts together. lasercutt-schnittmuster klein The last step was to fill the space between the two layers with foam. IMG_1528 IMG_1544 IMG_1565 IMG_1572
