‘undulus’ by scott jarvie

scottish designer scott jarvie, has conceived ‘undulus’, a modular lighting system influenced by the beauty of cloud formations. the lamp can be installed individually, in groups or in rows depending on the ambient requirements of the space, providing a vertical directional illumination with a diffused horizontal glow. unlike traditional compact fluorescent bulbs, this concept eliminates the need to dispose the electronic starter every time you replace the light. the current system only requires investment in a single moulding tool that is linked and capped with cut stock material. if the shells were to be injection moulded, there would be scope to introduce clip features that would reduce the component count even further.
