The designer thinks that light is both dynamic and static. He wants to create a scene which switches characters in different conditions. This desktop lighting design creates a contrast image of dynamics and statics, opacity and transparency, solid and void, and defined boundary and infinite reflectivity. A number of frozen hurricanes in the center not only deliver the image of dynamic interaction between each other, but also create a different contrast between solid force and void field.

Interview with Naai-Jung Shih on Hurricane Desktop lighting installation

What has been your main focus in designing this work? Especially what did you want to achieve?
Light is both dynamic and static. I want to create a scene which switches characters in different conditions.
What are your future plans for this award winning design?
Promote it, sell it, and share the concept with people. I also want to build it in a scale about 1000 times larger.
Is your design being produced or used by another company, or do you plan to sell or lease the production rights or do you intent to produce your work yourself?
It’s not being produced or used by another company. I plan to sell or lease the production rights or to produce my work by myself.
What made you design this particular type of work?
I want to challenge the dynamic and static nature of lighting installation.
Who is the target customer for his design?
This is for individuals, collectors, interior designers, or architects.
How did you come up with the name for this design? What does it mean?
I think “Hurricane” is purposely selected for the dynamic effect no matter the light is on or off.
What is the role of technology in this particular design?
It’s very crucial in controlling design quality and explore design possibilities.
What are some of the challenges you faced during the design/realization of your concept?
The first challenge was to create a solid image next to the void one to extend the virtual boundary of the design. The reflection inside the double-layered box did it. The second one was to distribute light from the bottom to the top without too much reduction. The arrangement of hurricane pieces solved most of the problem.
How did you decide to submit your design to an international design competition?
I think it’s time to meet people, to introduce myself, and discuss concept with people.
