Lamp Model - "Beyond Construction" Lamp

Hey there! I'm a 17 year old student studying Art and Design for one of my A levels. I've made a proof of concept for my lamp I'm making for school but unfortunately due to these trying times that is all I can do. I've made a lamp based off of construction cranes. The idea was to get several cubes that could link together to make a lamp of your determined size and curvature. I've also made a YouTube video explaining the main process. I would love to get some feedback on your opinions on the lamp design, how much you'd pay for it, or any extra additional thoughts you may have, thank you.

The youtube video can be found at

Most impressive on many levels. However, for professional work this design seems to me to be far too complex and difficult to adjust in height and angle in a hurry, a state in which we always find ourselves.

Rick is right... that's something that's probably not applicable to the film and video production industry, which is what this forum is for. I'm not sure you know that, we occasionally get posts in here from someone asking about designing lighting for their kitchen or pool or whatever... but that's not what we all do. This forum is primarily about professional lighting design for cinematography and such (and maybe a little bit of stage work).

BUT... your idea is an uber-cool thing, and you've got very neat design there. I can certainly see it in a home/office/industrial setting, which is what I guessing the target market would be. You've done great work.

Very nicely put, Todd. I think this young man has a potentially terrific future.
