3D-Printed Table Lamps Bloom Like Flowers Filled with Light

Designer Patrick Jouin uses 3D-printing digital technology—rapid prototyping and 3D printing—to create his Bloom Table Lamp.

The award-winning lamp design transforms from initial bud-like position—its petal/shade drawn in—into a full bloom that releases maximum light. The single-piece print can be expanded or contracted by hand, depending on the amount of light desired. [Inhabitat]
