3D Printed ABS plastic, wood, acrylic 2-way mirror and electronics.

The Satellites project emerged from a series of experiments related to design systems. SUPERDUPERSTUDIO was building algorithms to generate graphic compositions from 3D models of American lunar spacecraft (in which can be download from google). Those 2D studies were a stepping stone to their end goal of writing procedures for making three dimensional objects.

SUPERDUPERSTUDIO wanted the lamps to take advantage of the new possibilities offered by personal manufacturing technologies like 3D printers. By using algorithms to generate unique components for each lamp, they saw an opportunity not only to allow consumers to intercept the manufacturing process, but also to ensure that no two lamps are the same. Because each lamp is a kit of parts that can be assembled in multiple ways, each expression endears itself to the owner that makes it.
