Barend Massow – multi disciplined designer

Barend Massow makes interesting laser cut lighting pieces inspired by traditional lighting forms. These fabulous pieces were cut from plywood and acrylic.

Drawings developed from Google sketchup

Barend came to us with his lighting designs modelled up in Google Sketch up. We helped to develop a set of designs that were fit for the laser which allowed each component to slot together and hold its form. This technique involved some serious attention to detail in calculating how much of the material the laser would burn away (known as tolerance.) The drawings had to be precisely dimensioned to accommodate this. If slightly out, Barends lights would most probably fall to pieces!
