Janis is a LED Lamp with inspiration from artists and scientists around the world.
During some meetings with the team, we realized we wanted janis to more than a LED lamp so we came up with the idea to create seasons for Janis designs with specific topics and tell a story about it, so that people who make or buy a Janis will get curious or inspired about art or science and learn about it too! so we started to work on mc escher incredible master pieces of art ...
pics follows with cnc completed plus some examples of mc escher art :-)
We wanted to improve our way to create Janis Lamps so started to play with our CNC machines :-)
We wanted a new box for janis, like a bit more good looking janis, so did some tries with parametric kerf designs for bending wood, this was the first tries we did with it :-)
Below picture was an artist design from a Colombian artist
During early 2015, hackbo and 1/4 tech (hackerspaces from Bogota, Colombia ) started to work together on different types of projects, of of them was janis :-) , we are happy to show the world the project and the story behind.
This is some early stage production we did for mini maker-faire bogota and SOFA event.
Some fun with Falcon ;-)
During superconf 2015 at lightning talks, Janis was on stage!
