Architecture Research Office, New York, NY. Completed 2004.
Corrulamp-1 is constructed by stacking layers of laser-cut corrugated cardboard to create the taut, monolithic form of the lamp shade. The cut of each consecutive layer is precisely rotated relative to the grain of the corrugation, varrying the amount and direction of light emitted, and the transparency of the lamp from each position. The cardboard surfaces act as both focal point and filter for the light, resulting in a dynamic interplay of the solid and the ephemeral, animated by the movement of the viewer.
Corrulamp-1 was completed at Architecture Research Office, unter the supervision of Bryan Young and Stephen Cassell. ARO received a citation award from the AIA New York City Chapter in 2006 for Corrulamp-1. The piece has since appeared in numerous museums including the Vitra Design Museum, Fuller Craft Musuem and MoCA Taipei.
