A pendant lamp digitally fabricated from sheet materials. This design explores a mass customisation system, whereby the design, fabrication, and distribution of the artefact can be carried out within a local context. Via a graphical user interface, one can manipulate the form and scale of a Torus Lamp. The resultant toroid form serves as both light reflector and diffuser, while securing itself to the bulb. The algorithm then unfolds the modules required, generating the drawings required for fabrication via two-axis cutting or die-cutting.
