The Pixel light features a diffused radiating grid that resembles a retro 8bit graphic. I worked with Gantri to design a light that utilized their 3D printing manufacturing method. While shining light through a 3D print, I noticed the unique illuminated effect from the print’s gridded internal structure. I expanded upon this effect to design the Pixel light. During the day, the simple round form sits quietly with its circular face hiding the grid. At night the light illuminates the grid to become a moment of delight and surprise.
