A sheet of 1352 LEDs is rolled into a tube and connected together at its center. The top and bottom of the tube are folded backwards and fully attached to one another other yielding the final form. The form is based on a 4-sided polygonal mesh. The mesh takes its form from the electrical requirements of the LEDs, which each require two conductors to power them and two conductors to the supply the next set of LEDs. This mesh is interesting because it can be used to create tubes and donuts, but cannot be used to make a sphere. The material cannot be folded or the wires will touch each other and short.
The piece is from the Organic Electric series. It can be placed on a surface (often with the power wires penetrating the surface to remain invisible) or hung as a chandelier. Basket is made to order and can be produced at varying sizes. It can be dimmed with a standard low-voltage dimmer and comes with a brushed nickel ceiling canopy.
