Designed by Khawarizm Studio for the 3D Printed Luminaire Competition, the Lou’Lou’ lamp is the winning proposal submitted by Huda Lighting and Immensa Labs, revisiting the relationship between cultural heritage and nature in an innovative 3D printed lighting fixture.
Lou’Lou’, the Arabic word for “pearls” is a name that reflects the natural concept behind the design, our concept is to develop our cultural heritage in a futuristic design process, the form is influenced by famous wind catchers in Arab world architecture with parametric organic growth from Voronoi 3D fractals to represent Arabic heritage and organic growth patterns.
“As we are living in the age of fluidity in Zygmont Baumann’s philosophical approach; we decided to enhance fluidity in the Voronoi pattern, using just one algorithm for endless variations that represents the current Hegelian Zeitgeist,” Khawarizm Studio’s Lead Designer Muhammad Khalid.
The Lou’Lou’ lamp design implements the origin of concepts about futuristic lighting fixtures: Through a smart LED-lighting unit to the core of it, and based on internet-of-things technology, Lou’Lou’ is responsive to vocal commands with multiple lighting modes and colors; establishing itself as the first 3D printed smart lamp in the Middle East.
“We received a great honor to exhibit our 3D Printed Lamp design at one of the best design events in the Middle East, Dubai Design Week 2020, hosted by Colab space and arranged by the competition organizers Huda Lighting and Immensa Labs,” Khalid said.
