CIRCULAR | Jewelry X Furniture Design Collaboration
Jewelry X 15 Creative Industries Collaboration 11 - Furniture Design

Jewelry X 15 Creative industries Collaboration is a series of work related to the jewelry industry and 15 other creative careers such as animation, graphic design and so on. The aim of this project is to find out how the concept of jewelry is being used in other fields and what is the relationship between them. 

For the furniture design industry, jewelry often works as a decoration that applied to furnitures such as chairs, tables and so on. Inspired by the famous brand Swarovski, we decided to go with a pendant light that covered with precious facet stones. The keywords of this design are facet stones, reflection and intensity. In order to make the jewelry elements more visible in the design, we added another layer of sterling silver on the top of the glasses as a connector for the wire and the light itself. 
Design

The light is break into three parts - the metal part which contains all the wire and circuit components; the illuminator in the center; and glass decoration stripes with diamonds embedded on the surface. The glass stripes goes around the illuminator, with several asymmetrical cuts on the surface to create some movements. The diamonds, in transparent colors, are set on top of the glass stripes in two columns. Each glass stripes contains 150 to 170 diamonds and there are 35 stripes in total. 
Wireframe

We used Rhino for modeling and KeyShot for rendering. The model itself is not complex, except since there are so many stones on the surface, the computer became extremely slow and heated. When making the light, we changed our plans often to see which ones look the best. We want it to looks minimalism, but not too simple. Since there are so many diamonds, the surface looks messy and complicated when we finished our first model. Therefore we came up with a solution that to make some cuts on glass to drive the attention away from the diamonds.
