HALITE

Exploring Light - Lighting design


Salt is a fascinating material. It's not just the fact that no one could imagine food without salt. Salt has also a positive effect on the human's health: It spreads ions in the air and reduces electrosmog at the same time. Halite is the new interpretation of a salt lamp which distinguishes itself from the typical shape of a salt lamp. I abstracted the rough and porous material by transforming it into a geometric, smooth shape. The salt rock - with its delicate structure of black and white salt crystals - originates from the depths of the Northern Alps in Bavaria.
Halite generates a pleasant light effect through the rock and emits bright light through it's hole.

About the project: Over the course of one semester 17 students experimented with Seoul Semiconductors new Acrich LED technology and developed a wide variety of lighting concepts.
