VORONOI | Carlos del Castillo
The Voronoi diagrams have been used in engineering and natural sciences since the 19th century. Carlos del Castillo achieved to bring the continuity of their surfaces and the beauty of their shapes to a family of lamps.
Concepts like texture, emotion, roughness, organic, rustic and traditional that are unconsciously attached to sand meet the characteristics of complexity, geometry, science, innovation, future & trend of the Voronoi pattern.
Sand and technology form these luminaires to be a modern, simple and elegant element for all living spaces.
The main goal of this project with Sandhelden was to create a product able to teach and show what this technology is capable of doing in terms of complexity. At the same time, it studies the limitations of the technology of Sandhelden.

CARLOS DEL CASTILLO
Carlos studied Bachelor of Industrial Design Engineering and Product Development in Madrid (Spain) where he is originally from. The passion, commitment and the continuous pursuit of the connections between design and science are the characteristics that define his work.
Thanks to the versatility acquired through his engineering and design skills, passion for imaginative design and high motivation, he loves being able to face new challenges.
As the head of the product design department of Sandhelden, he also designed the Voronoi collection. A series of luminaries based on the famous mathematics tessellations, bringing for the first time the worldwide used pattern to the 3D sand printing technology.
