    The Hive Lantern Pencil Holder is the result of pattern investigations. I explored the balance of positive and negative space in repeating patterns. I wanted the design to be intricate and elegant while maintaining a simple production process. All the parts are cut out on a laser and there is no glue needed in its assembly. This design makes full use of the laser's potential through its geometric patterns and finger joints. The translucent film that is used as a diffuser in the lantern can also be cut on the laser for maximum efficiency. Each pencil holder is also outfitted with a modular short range motion detecting light to make sure that the pencil holder only shines when it needs to. The Hive Lantern Pencil Holder demonstrates that even in small scale manufacturing, efficient processes of production can still yield elegant products. Read Less
