3D-Printed Flower Lamp ‘Blooms’ To Release More Light [Pics]
A creative lighting feature mimics nature.
- 29 august 2012
French designer Patrick Jouin has created a minimalistic and creative lighting feature. The Bloom Table Lamp was developed using a 3D printer and was designed for MGX. The lamp, printed as a single piece- including the hinges, looks a floral ornament once assembled. The ‘petals’ are collapsible and users can expand the design from ‘bud’ to full ‘bloom’ to control the lighting. In ‘bud’ form, the lamp emits a soft light, and when open, a fuller light.
Jouin’s unique lamp was a Red Dot Design Award Winner is 2011, and the model is currently on display at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York.
