fine lighting

We developed the architectural and assembly strategies for this product and implemented the mechanical design. Special attention was paid to create the LED lighting effect on the top of the device. In order to achieve the gradated truss pattern effect, a translucent plastic housing was painted black, and then the truss pattern was laser etched through the paint to reveal the light pipe below.
