Hyphae is a collection of 3D printed artifacts constructed of rhizome-like networks. Inspired by the vein structures that carry fluids through organisms from the leaves of plants to our own circulatory systems, we created a simulation which uses physical growth principles to build sculptural, organic structures. Starting from an initial seed and a surface, we grow a hierarchical network where nodes constantly branch and merge. The densely interconnected structure is at once airy and strong.

The Lichenfan light shade is pictured 3D printed in Shapeways 'sandstone' material, a very rigid, hard material that feels like sandstone. It is pictured here as a lamp shade.
This is Part A (the main part) and Part B of the lamp can be separately purchased 3D printed from Shapeways.
The lamp base, electricals and light fittings are not included. The lamp base pictured is 'Hemma' from IKEA. Alternatively just use the lamp shade with an L.E.D candle (battery powered 'candle'). See photographs of the light shade with an L.E.D candle.
Care instructions:The material is brittle if dropped on hard surfaces, so handle it as you would a precious ceramic object. SAFETY NOTE: Not suitable for use with real candles.
An organic-looking, sculptural fractal light shade, to add fascinating illumination to your room. This sculptural form is constructed using 3D printing. This technology can achieve intricate details and complex undercuts that could not be created using traditional manufacturing processes.

Two identical Pieces make one new amazing lampShade.
The two parts of this innovative lighting system interlock to form one lampshade around the cable of an existing hanging light fixture. The locking mechanism was inspired by a Bikini Clip that is as easily opened and closed.
Lending itself well to bespoke customer alterations, Two Piece Shade can comprise personal messages or patterns to make it entirely unique and special. The translucent properties of Shapeway’s WSF make it the ideal material to generate interesting shadows and only reveal the inside when the light is lit. It’s further advantage of adding color opens up the possibility of mix-and-matching these interchangeable parts to your personal taste.
The final size of the overall lampshade is H22cm x W12.4cm x D12.4cm
Please note that you need to order 2 pieces of this design in order to purchase one whole lampshade. These can however be different colours just as you like it.
Further interior patterns and designs will follow. But until then feel free to get in touch if you have any ideas/thoughts/wishes that you would like to see developed into a Two Piece Part.
