2D Design Class Comes Up With Some Bright Ideas

Students in Matt Martino’s 2-Dimensional Design course came up with plenty of bright ideas as they produced their own custom light fixtures using the laser cutter and 2-D fabrication techniques this semester. On Friday, January 20, the students shared their journey and reflected on challenges, discoveries and further improvements to be made.

The students began by researching and analyzing light fixtures by notable industrial designers and architects before sketching and building rough cardboard prototypes. In the next phase, students translated their rough prototypes into accurate AutoCAD drawings to create a kit of parts to be laser-cut and assembled.  

In the final phase of design, students moved back and forth between prototyping, assembling and problem-solving to build a unique yet functional and structurally stable pendant or free standing light fixture.
