The T light is inspired partly from the voronoid field of drying mud.
As one of my kids pointed out, any group of small cells, randomly distributed on a plane, will naturally form a voronoid tesselation when their membranes grow into one another (like so many expanding balloons). The veins might be constructed by following a different algorithm, however (I know nothing about how leaves develop as they bud & grow, so can only speculate).
The light is the product of an integral design process that combines computation, mathematics, material performance and fabrication. To achieve both the lighting affects and the geometric configuration, the light is composed of 2 form Ecoresin. When folded and nested, the ecoresin ruffles are laced together with an associative woven lattice of aircraft suspension cable, which, when combined produce a combination of tensile and compressive forces for rigid structural stability.
This needs a lot of space and the space around them. And what shadows it forms the surrounding surfaces
