Open Source is a software development method for anyone to use as well as improve and redistribute projects. We questioned whether we could apply this concept (widely used in the programming world), to product design, and communicate the value of Open Source design to enhance people's creativity.
POKKARI is a DIY lighting fixture created with feathers. We created this in response to a request for a magazine to create an interior project that can be practiced as a DIY. We proposed a design that uses feathers as a type of shade, reminiscent of the sun as if the origin of light.
As a foundation of subsequent Open Source projects.
Methods for producing this lighting fixture was published in magazines, which resulted in many to have worked on using this DIY lighting. POKKARI was the first Open Source project we worked on, which lead us to design further Open Source projects.
