ZooM is a functional and surprising 3d-printed lamp. Created as a programmable object in generative design software, ZooM's structure is made up of hundreds of repeating elements, that together form a series of interlocking spirals. An example of '4d-printing', ZooM starts life completely assembled and flatpacked. Folding ZooM out to its final shape never ceases to amaze - the video here gives a glimpse. (In fact, may I suggest that you buy at least two of these - one to hang, and one to play with?).
In use as a lamp, ZooM has an intriguing texture that's flexible like a textile, but maintains its form like a solid object. The semi-transparent structure shield's the bulb's glare, while transmitting light efficiently.

This is the medium sized ZooM, at about 20 cm diameter and 18 cm high. To complete the lampshade, simply use a standard fitting that can be obtained from any hardware store. Use a small diameter, low energy bulb. Note that some (harmless) powder residue from the production process sometimes stays on the product; this should be easy to clean off before you install the lamp.

ZooM is also available in a large size here. A two-pack at reduced prices can be found here.
