 A Napoleon tessellation is a simple set of equilateral triangles arranged around a three-pronged figure with each arm of equal length. From this starting point, a single fixture, cluster or field can be generated to light a space. 
       
     
 Lights are dimmable, colour adjustable LEDs which are reflected by the three triangles that make up a fixture. As a further articulation of the reflection, the cut-plane of the underside of each triangle varies creating a textured plane below the lights.
       
     
  Napoleon Light  was developed for an annual exhibition of Toronto-based furniture design. A rough prototype for a fixture, originally intended for a sushi bar, employs novel cutting and folding methods to create sheet brass, three-lamp pendant fixtures which can function as either a stand-alone, clustered into groupings, or form full fields. Each fixture is folded to accept an adjacent piece in what is called a Napoleon Tessellation pattern.
