The Lightbody Series investigates the role of typology in design and architecture. Existing typologies are decomposed, reassembled and modified based on the interacting forces of pressure and tension. 

Lightbody02 started as an experiment, in which a pendant luminaire is investigated as a design typology. During the manufacturing process of glass blowing, its individual parts are placed in a geometrical field of tension and generate deformation caused by different material properties. 

The final output of Lightbody02 needs to be understood as a snapshot of interacting forces during this process.
