How I made my Giant Honey Comb Light

I haven't put up any images on my website of how I make my products but I wanted a page to show how I went about making the giant Honey Comb Light for Tom Dixon.

The beginings. I had to make a structure out of card to see whether the proportions were going to be right.

Once we knew the dimensions were going to work we cut the appropiate amount of material to create the giant shade.

We experimented with back lighting the material.

Some final adjustments...

Having to squeeze this thing into a 3 door hatchback was interesting. A bit of a tight squezze!!

Once we had manouvered this rather oversized lampshade from out of the car it was time to hang it in Mr Dixon's studio.

And voila, the giant Honey Comb light.

Hopefully something will come of this. Its been almost a year since I presented the light and I'm still waiting to find out whether the design will be used. Fingers crossed.
