These are 3 concepts I developed for the Pendant Light based off of my agenda/criteria and precedents.
The Jelly Fish Lamp
I was able to successfully design the shape in Rhino but I had troubles creating the surface pattern in Grasshopper. The shape I referenced from Rhino as a Brep when Morphing it onto the surface will be inverted with the shape facing the inside of the surface.
Geometric Globe Lamp
For this iteration I desired to have polygon shapes on the surface in Grasshopper to have apertures but it did not work out for me.
The Complete Me Lamp (My Favorite)
I had the same issue for this one as I did for the “Jelly Fish.” The pattern I referenced as a Brep was inverted on the curved surface.
