Vancouver-based Blue Pine Studio has created wonderful 3D-illusion light sculptures made from engraved acrylic slides and illuminated by LED lights. The sculptures come in an array various eye-catching designs that use 16 different colors and 4 different lighting modes, all of which can be controlled with an included remote.
The lighting part is made of clear acrylic, known for its excellent light transmission properties. Where the acrylic piece is engraved light shines through. The approximate overall dimensions of the lighting piece are 150x160mm (exact dimensions depend on the selected design). The lighting base is made of two parts: the lower part is made of solid pine and the upper part is made of plywood. Both parts are machined with CNC milling machine then sanded and finally coated with a clear coating. All the works involved in this project including design of 3D forms, engraving of the acrylic piece, machining of the lamp base, sanding, coating, and assembly are done by Blue Pine Studio in North Vancouver.
The project was successfully funded through Kickstarter in September 2014 and now three of the most popular designs, “Crystal Ball,” “Buckeye Butterfly,” and “Octopus,” are currently available in the Laughing Squid Store for a limited time.
