With 3D printing designers, product developers, and craftsmen can introduce new kinds of customizable furniture and decorations. Just like designer Paula Szarejko, who used ZMorph 2.0 SX multitool 3D printer to manufacture beautiful flower-like modular lamps.
Her design has an organic, natural feel thanks to a slick stand topped with thin, translucent lampshades shaped like hollyhocks. Szarejko designed parts for a floor lamp and a smaller sconce, that could also be used as a chandelier. In both cases, a 12V power supply is hidden within the base of the lamp and provides power to all 3W LEDs through a series connection.
Modularity is the key feature of the 3D printed flower lamps. They’re manufactured in parts, which gives freedom to decide how tall the floor lamp should be, how big the chandelier, or how many lampshades they include. It’s also possible to reshape them since the printed parts are joined with printed threads and not glue. The same goes for all repairs that can be done by simply printing and replacing a required part instead of the entire lamp.
3D printed flower lamps were made from PLA filaments using ZMorph 2.0 SX with 1.75 mm Plastic Extruder. Paula used gray for the stand and translucent natural color for the lampshades. This combination made the lamps into elegant background decorations in her apartment but the design could also work with bright colors making them the central piece of every room. With this level of customization, every home, apartment, and room can become more personal and homey.
