This beautifully-sculpted Lampara Tango lamp was designed in collaboration between Professor Alex Lobos, Graduate Director of Industrial Design at RIT, and former ID grad student David Villareal.
The pair used generative design to good effect:
"It was created in Autodesk Fusion 360. The goal was to generate an elegant form with a simple workflow. The lamp is modeled out of three rings at different heights that are connected together by letting the software generate the geometry."
"The lamp was originally fabricated at RIT with a Shopbot CNC router. Autodesk graciously created a second prototype of the lamp out of wood and aluminum at their shop Pier 9 in San Francisco. Thank you to Jeff Smith, Michael Sagan and Pacific Puzzle Works for making this happen. Special thanks to Mintesinot Tekle Gebre for helping out in the fabrication of the lamp."
