Magdalena Lis

A hardworking, enthusiastic and bilingual designer with an interest in sustainable, minimalistic and natural design. This aesthetic has been present in my projects throughout university. My personal philosophy is that good design should function well and be long lasting not following a quick trend.
My passion for 3D modelling and rendering via Computer Aided Design started in secondary school and has since grown to be my ideal job. I will be furthering my ability in Solidworks and other CAD software post-graduation to challenge my skills as a designer and as an individual.

PORCELANA Lampshade

A simple yet elegant lampshade made from porcelain that allows both ambient and task lighting to be achieved.
The PORCELANA Lampshade was inspired by the act of counting tree rings and ice core dating, both methods may not be fully accurate but they both create a remarkable visual pattern of time, unique to each tree and ice core. The pendant is made up of 49 rings which represent the average amount of years people own their homes, this narrative was created to encapsulate the memories of the family in a timeless lampshade that doesn’t go out of style and will fit into the home as it grows to reflect the owners.
Porcelain was chosen for the material due to the beautiful translucency that can be achieved. The shape is a classic design, but the material causes a sense of fragility which is to encourage the user to take greater care of the product.
