Refining my Design

I’ve decided to keep my design quite simple, so that the focus remains on the materiality covering the light.

After establishing my design, I finalised the dimensions I wanted. My design will be a table-light of the following dimensions:

(view in elevation, dimensions in mm).


I was initially planning on using MDF for the skeleton of the light, however given the scale of it, I feel cardboard is a more practical option as it is much lighter.
