For a design project at the Florence Institute of Design we were asked to design a lighting system. The inspiration source I chose is a DNA string. These beautiful helix shaped natural constructions could form an ideal base for a lighting system.
I thought about a table or floor lamp where the parts connecting the two helixes could be tubes in which a LED string is placed. By making it possible to turn the tubes, the lights can be orientated in different ways to create a multipurpose lighting piece.
