To overcome the thermal concerns of placing the battery on top of a 3W LED in a closed enclosure, I designed air channels throughout the fixture to dissipate heat.

I had to put a lot of emphasis on aesthetics and make the size as small as possible while maintaining the airy feeling and long term functionality. To overcome the thermal concerns of an LED in a closed enclosure, I designed hidden air channels throughout the cup to overcome this challenge.
The unibody design gave it strength and also the possibility of waterproofing it for the next iteration, especially after finding out how some users would love to have it even beside the bathtub during the exhibition in Stockholm, a scenario that never crossed my mind.
A few months later during my free time, I gave it a radial-brush finish manually using a cloth hanger as a fixture to turn the casing on and upgraded the LED to 2700k. This project helped me discover my passion for lighting design, which I took it further with Praja.2 and many other lighting design projects that you'll find here.
