“Canopy” is a 3D printed lights floated in the air, designed by Alex Buckman who wanted to create a new untraditional light system without the presence of rigidity. So this product is a good result from a blending between LED technology and 3D printing, exploring the ability of this mixture to create an adaptable and portable network to provide an interactive space.

The canopy is divided by two parts, the fixture part that is described as a thin supporting structure that can be connected to any ports in the base depending on the needs and location of the user, the other part is thebulb covered by 3D printed patterns having organic forms and inspired by geometrically forms of nature.

This light system provides the use of lightweight and low-voltage electronics. The designer said: “it was important that this lighting system benefited the user both in functionality and general wellbeing to provoke the idea of how we design objects for interior spaces in the future.”
