As a result of a research into NURBS-curves of CAD programs a physical translation, the desk light ‘bend_u’, was created. By attaching two spring metal strips with different length to each other, the shorter strip gets bended under the tension of the longer strip. Creating a visualization of the bending intensity.
This not only provides a minimalised construction of a desk light arm, but also includes the electrical wiring. In order to avoid a short cut the adjustment screws are made out of nylon. A flexible LED strip is used as a light source. The ballast is the base of the light.
