Interior design benefits from using 3D printing to create new kinds of customizable furniture and decorations. Designer Paula Szarejko came up with a neat idea for modular lamps. Clients can choose how tall the floor lamp should be, how big the chandelier, how many lampshades, and in which colors. She used ZMorph 2.0 SX multitool 3D printer not only to prototype parts but also to manufacture the final product that can be used and shipped to her clients.
Szarejko designed a floor lamp and a smaller sconce that can serve as a chandelier. Their flower-like feel comes from a slick stand topped with translucent lampshades shaped like hollyhocks. The lamps were printed on ZMorph 2.0 SX using 1.75 mm Plastic Extruder. Gray PLA was used for the stand and translucent natural PLA for the lampshades, but these colors can be customized depending on the client. The 12V power supply is hidden within the base of the lamp and provides power to all 3W LEDs through a series connection.
Thanks to the modular design of the lamps, it’s possible to reshape them later on, 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. It’s a great example of how 3D printing enables a new level of customization in interior design and give designers a reliable set of tools to manufacture their own pieces. This way every home, apartment, and room can become more personal and homey.
