Podz lamp project

This project was created in my second year of University and was designed around the requirements of an organic shape utilised in a lighting project.

The choice of a desk, wall and large free standing lamp was given to groups. My project was the desk lamp and utilised a pod style design with a matte grey exterior with a cooper leaf interior to reflect a soft light effect.
