This is a small rendition of a conceptual table consisting of two interactive layers with different patterns and lighting arrangements, which can be manipulated by the user. It stands on a central pillar made of curved wood which further enhances it's aesthetic.
The patterns were laser etched onto two acrylic panels.
The stand was made using thin plywood, wherein the central beam was laser cut to curve and form the cylinder. Certain patterns cut onto wood bring forth these beautiful properties. I stuck two LED strips on a ring to be installed on the beam.
The opposite faces of the ring were attached with the acrylic panels lit by the strips, respectively.
To augment the interaction, the LED strips were connected to two potentiometers, respectively. This enabled the user to manipulate the color and intensity of lighting these acrylic panels.
