The Interactive BIFID™ Lighting System Incorporates Complex Algorithmics And Mathematics Into Its Design

by • April 5, 2011 • Industrial And Product DesignComments (0)5027

BIFID™ is an interactive lighting prototype designed by principal designer Alisa Andrasek, and her team of fellow designers and computer whizzes: Andrea Flamenco, Tobias Schwinn, and Roland Snooks.  The project is a collaboration with MB Wellington Studio (creators of Lightblocks®), the Eastman Chemical Company (who donated the materials) and Michael Luck Schneider. BIFID™ is a fusion of many levels of design consideration: algorithmically-derived intersection points, the materiality of the polycarbonate material, and the constraints of the numerically-controlled fabrication method available to them.  The pulsing light patterns were programmed according to the mathematics of wave interference taking into account the geometry of the existing ceiling.
