Veblen

Named after Thorstein Veblen, b. 1857 d. 1929, Norwegian-American economist and sociologist, author of the 1899 book The Theory of the Leisure Class, critiquing capitalism and the idea of conspicuous consumption.  Approximately 1% of products made each year are not disposed of within 12 months, that means that 99% of products made each year wind up in the bin.

The light was a form driven exploration around a predetermined method of illumination, a low power LED focused through a lens to a reflector.  In order for maximum usability, there had to be versatility with the reflector mechanism.  Experimentation and exploration into a Terrazzo light fitting were conducted, a categoric failure, however worthy exploration in itself.  Both natural and synthetic aggregates were assessed.
