Sjang Niederwieser Volare S3 purperheart


jang Niederwieser has produced a lighting series to highlight an interplay of new and old techniques. Created with 3D-printed shapes and copper wire that also acts as a conductor of electricity, the design sees knitted cylinders of pure silk float in an PurpleHeart frame by the use of tension. Single LEDs are soldered one by one to the copper wire, becoming part of the object and making the lamp itself an electric circuit. The process of making is conducted completely in-house with no external manufacturers involved – the Volare S3 PurpleHeart is made using 3D printers and hand knitting machines, with the rest carefully assembled by hand.Purpleheart is an strong and durable type of wood, found in Mexico and Brazil. Purpleheart slowly, over time, changes its color to violet purple and eventually to deep purple.
