Lamp shades are inspired by visual appearance of heat-sinks visible for example on industrial lamps or nowadays on LED bulbs.
Design can be produced in any color or size and has wide variety of possibilities thanks to 3D printing technology. It opens doors also to customization to fit in any socket, bulb or any other specification by customer.
Lamp shades are designed to be printed out of PLA material using FDM 3D printer. While designing this shades I have taken in account the technology and way how the object is printed. Trying to avoid any support material and use as less material as possible to build firm structure but also big enough in short print time.
Lampshades has been developed in collaboration with Be3D.cz - https://cults3d.com/en/users/be3D_printers
Shade is designed to work with IKEA cord set SEKOND: http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/50263715/
