A cocoon is a shell, which larvae of varies insects, particularly caterpillars, are building for their metamorphosis. The caterpillars use for this a liquid which is pressed out from their spinneret and hardens in the air quickly.
The conceptual idea comes from this parallel to the PolyJet technology, at which a liquid photopolymer is applied out of nozzles and hardens through UV-light.
The adaption of the construction and the clean design of a cocoon lead to the emergence of the inner element. Its geometry is formed by spun threads, which wind protectingly around the light source.
