The design concept for Y-35 came about through the desire to produce a lighting system that exhibited characteristics of variability and transformation as seen in custom fabricated pieces, but to maintain a modular construction suitable for mass production. This thinking led to concepts of instance, self-similarity and recursion, ideas that are associated with the naturally occurring mathematical phenomenon commonly known as fractal geometry. Fractal geometry exhibits qualities of infinite regression wherein each iteration is reduced in scale providing a sense of variation despite maintaining a uniform shape definition. Aside from the elementary transformation of scale, rotation was explored as a way to generate variation and introduce spatial properties to the design that evolves the fractal diagram into a three dimensional lighting installation.
