The Story of 'Dispenser'
“I aim to encourage an intuitive relationship between different materials, exploring how disparate materials can be used together. The ‘Dispenser’ light combines new material technologies with primitive techniques, combining high-tech components with traditional habits.”
“The object utilises contrasting approaches to one need – lighting – and combines a static ‘on-grid’ unit with agile solar-powered roaming units. In creating the extruded aluminium frame construction I deliberately moved away from any formal method of construction or users manual. My intention is to show that there are ways to function outside of the expected patterns, materials and functions.”
