**A Word About Wedding Use*** Several things make these holders suitable for weddings:
-great price for 3, so you can decorate all of your reception tables.
-Verstile design allows you to add personal shades that match your wedding colour scheme, and also theme. For example, if you have a daisy wedding, put daisies on the shade! Put names on the shades and you have an instant romantically lit place holder at the table.
-When things get crazy at the wedding reception, these little beauties in WSF are durable. They bounce.
-Fits nicely into a purse or coat pocket to take home as favours.
WARNING: Use of real candles is not recommended. They may get too hot for the paper or the plastic holder. Instead, use the handy dandy electrical tea-lights available at your dollar store.
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.
