The Pollen lights are abstract interpretations of pollen viewed under an electron microscope. The form is a marriage of a dodecohedron and the texture of the surface of pollen under magnification.
Here the property of material translucence is achieved by employing the process of etching on sheet metal. Individual facets are etched and then spot welded.
These lights were developed as a project in collaboration with interior designer Sumessh Menon for a ﬁne dining restaurant N-Bar in Mumbai.
