A battery-operated light (perhaps best used as a sconce), which takes full advantage of its purposefully selected materials. The light is held together without adhesives or hardware, instead using the natural flexibility and tension of copper and acrylic. By design, this light is simple and easy to assemble, replace the bulb, or swap out parts that break. Translucent acrylic diffuses and softens the fluorescent light, while a copper backing plate reflects the light outwards. Finally, a routed walnut board holds the electrical components and provides a rigid substrate for the rest of the design. A jig was laser-cut out of craft plywood in order to control the heat-bending of the acrylic sheet.
