As an entertainment lighting designer by trade I thought I could re-invent the Fresnel light. Fresnel is a term that describes the glass saving lens used in lighthouses, thus achieving a narrow focus without a massively thick hunk of glass. In theatrical lighting fixtures it refers to a type of body that uses an adjustable Fresnel lens. My lamp is made of walnut, cedar, oak, bubinga, and a few exotic accents. While it has no actual Fresnel lens, it is otherwise completely faithful to the look and function with rotating barn doors, a collapsible “C-stand”, and a very difficult to make gell frame for changing the color. The lamp is an LED that is turned on by touching the brass “lens adjusting knob”, under the body, to 3 different levels.
