The following is a sketch I have made of a base unit for an LED lamp I would like to make. I am a noob at product design so any help would be great. The idea is that an LED matrix grid would be embedded on the top section of the unit in the picture. On top of that will sit a glass lamp unit. Where is the best place to start with this? I want to use super high brightness LEDS and then cover them with something like rice paper to conceal their identity. And the base unit, I dont want this to be plastic. Does anyone have any suggestions for a slick clean finish, and how to have it constructed? Thanks.
