As the design studio explains, producing a stunning yet affordable metal design piece with just the power of folding and laser cutting proved to be quite the challenge. After much brainstorming, the team decided to utilize a cut tube to hold the bulb and a compact metal sheet to guide the light.

In the process, they used laser cutting technology to carve out a precise hole for the tube to fit snugly and securely.
