In this project the assignment was given to ‘design a support for the light. The first questions that rose to my mind were of metaphorical character: “If they ask to support the light, what would it weigh? Would it be heavy or light? What kind of support would be sufficient and provide safety, beauty and unity to the design?”

Based on an investigation on hyperbolic paraboloids I was doing at that moment a solution was born. The form of a hyperbolic paraboloids is visually attractive and structurally very strong. A support based on a hyperbolic paraboloids would make a good support for light.

For its observer the final light support is a complete and interesting object due to its robust and stylized complexion.When turned on, the light strips the construction and the light is  of an intimate character.
