Towers are tall table top night lights using brightly illuminated acrylic rods and wood framing to create an artwork representing modern day skyscrapers reaching towards the heavens.

They are made of laser cut 1/8″ birch plywood, 1/8″ diameter acrylic rods illuminated by 3528 LEDs, and powered at 12vDC consuming <5 watts of power.

Towers were inspired by contemplating my Metropolis night light with long acrylic rods and the extra support structure required to keep the acrylic rods vertical and parallel.
