s.phy.180.76 by Casey Mahon

The project s.phy.180.76 created by Casey Mahon found on Behance is a great project not only for the beautiful three dimensional light fixture created but also for the technical qualities of its redesign.

This project shows yet another way the laser cutter can be used to create things that go beyond the two dimensional with the exploiting the bendable nature of certain woods via the the use of smaller cut out pieces and pivoting fasteners.

Whats also interesting is how Casey took previous plans for an earlier version and was able to make his redesign more efficient in terms of reducing cut time, number of unique parts and reducing assembly time (2 hours cutting/4 hours assembly vs. 47mins cutting/1 hour assembly).
