  • 360 Degrees Lighting Sphere

    This full geodesic sphere constructed out of laser cut MDF is the result of an assignment for the Lighting Design course at Industrial Design Engineering. The assignment was to design a research setup that allowed researchers to adjust lighting on an object in such a way that it was possible to vary between totally diffuse lighting and direct lighting, and anything in between. This solution used a large array of high powered LEDs that were aimed both at the sphere's inner surface (to provide diffuse lighting) and at the center of the sphere (to provide direct lighting). These LEDs were controlled by a microcontroller, so any variation of lighting was possible.
