I was meaning to put this up for quite a while now. Back in 2011, I designed and built a ceiling lamp which I wanted to share.
It started out when we wanted to improve the lighting situation in our living room and I was initially looking for an off-the-shelf lamp which full fills our needs:
- potential to provide a lot of light (>8000 lumens for our ~30m^2 room)
- indirect lightning
- minimalistic (& invisible?) design
- low power (LED)
- controllable from a computer/smartphone
One would think that in 2011 this kind of lamp would be main stream, but it turned out to be quite hard to find a lamp (or two) which would fit our needs. This is why I started to play with the idea to design and build my own.
