The design process of this light is derived from the analysed geometry of Sama dance. Elegance, purity and simplicity are the keywords to describe Sama. The nature of Sama is engaged with minimal and organic stable curves. All of those twists, bends and transitions are the abstract translation of maturity in form. These curves contain a high level of information when studied in detail. Developing a conceptual geometry based on the properties of the analysed choreography has been the main challenge in designing this product. In addition to proportions of human body an extra element of unity had been added to the object to elevate its legibility. While metal and concrete has always been good matches in combination, they can also represent art in the roughest and purest way. Therefore; a casting technique has been developed to produce the lower part while the hyper curve is made by copper foundry. The upper piece is a folded sheet of (matted) copper with a faded cut to drag light outside. The object is meant to be a decorative stand light which is 90*30*9 cm in dimensions.
