The Ripple applique is a lighting unit that can be designed using either brass, copper or metal. These materials are then hammered and cut into rings which are then placed above one another to recreate the pattern of a water ripple. The layering structure is designed to disperse light in an artistic and visually appealing way.The shape could also be half of the ripple or a quarter of the ripple. The metal ripple could also be sprayed using any color from electrostatic paints that one desires.
The project was inspired by raindrops when steadily observed and how they propagate and contrive a sequence of circular forms from the moment they fall from the sky down to when they marry with water. This pluvial process is the substructure of the design concept formation for the ripple applique.
