3D Printed Lamp
I aimed to design a simple but flexible desk lamp with ample possibilities for light positioning. In order to achieve this I used high power LED lights for their small size and a magnet based mechanism.

THIS IS ME
Industrial Design professional, graduated from the University of Buenos Aires. As a professional I've worked on diverse projects ranging from marketing campaigns to new technology application developments like 3D printing.
As a designer I see myself as a pragmatist that's still likes to take a project to its limits. I've have a passion for resolving up to the most minute detail and I get along just as well with a pencil as with a circular saw.

A peculiar thing about new design technologies, and generative design in particular, is the ambiguity regarding the creator/tool dynamic. These new technologies are no longer just a representation tool like traditional CAD, but they have become intertwined with the creative process; it’s the machine as a design generator. This presents us with new relationships between […]
3D printing is a fascinating technology as it’s very flexible and adaptable, but I’ve been wondering… what is the language of 3D printing? Every manufacturing process has a peculiar expression, be it because of the properties of the material or the limitations of the process itself. 3D printing’s flexibility allows it a wide range of […]
When people talk about a product being friendly they mostly comment on its relationship with the environment or with the user (environmentally friendly / user friendly) but a friendly product doesn’t necessarily has to share these characteristics. We can talk about friendly products from the perspective that form and usability creates a more personal and […]
It’s not strange to attach human characteristics to objects. This process of anthropomorphism is a basic mechanism to develop relationship with our environment and to facilitate communication about it. It might seem childish to define objects in human terms but for a designer it can be a valuable tool as it allows the designer to […]
Object are defined by the culture they originated from. It’s origin can be perceived in one way or another This original cultural identity is reflected in the use of language, it’s object’s code (like I mentioned previously) and the way it’s used. One of the defining characteristic of cultural identity is the ability of reflecting […]
One of the basic tools in communication studies is Jakobson model. It presents all the involved actors in a communicational process. It’s well known so there’s no much need for an introduction. If we interpolate it to the Industrial Design field we can find some parallels. The sender would be the […]
To define one’s identity is not an easy task. A great deal of self-reflection is needed to get to know ourselves. But it can’t be argued that knowledge is very important for each person. Identity is what defines us and communicates outward. It’s an interesting exercise to see if the same can be done for […]
