Clothoid.A lamp is created by a mathematical curve formula and then that spline is lofted in 3d CAD software. Resulting digital form is parametric and adjustable in almost infinite number of combinations within CAD software (grasshopper3D). Chosen form is then solidified via 3D printing. On display here is shape I call Clothoid.A
You can imagine this 3D form as afterimage of one single point in space as it moves, self-intersecting and rotating around, creating this 3D object. Whole shade form is actually one single line... wrapping around itself. Whole 3d printed light shade is created in one piece.
This lamp is available for purchase now on Shapeways. What you will get from Shapeways is 3D printed lamp shade only.
NOTE: Lamp base will be sent separately.
