3D Printed Lamp Shades to DIY Blooming Flower 2.0

Image of 3D Printed Lamp Shades to DIY: Blooming Flower 2.0

The ingenuity behind this 3D printed lamp is gob-smacking. Building a bedroom lamp for his daughter, designer Jason Suter created a flower that — when activated — unfolds before the light comes on. But it doesn’t stop there. Rotating the same switch will cycle through a spectrum of warm, soothing colors. We love it!

Image of 3D Printed Lamp Shades to DIY: M&O Paris lamp

This beautiful 3D printed lamp shade was inspired by the most famous building in Paris, the Eiffel Tower. Created by Samuel N. Bernier, a Canadian industrial designer, this item can be easily produced using any conventional desktop 3D printer. It’s printed in several pieces however, so some assembly is required.

3D Printed Lamp Shades to DIY Teardrop Lamp

Image of 3D Printed Lamp Shades to DIY: Teardrop Lamp

The Teardrop Lamp is a mixed media project that looks amazing. The lamp features a concrete base — made out of Shapecrete — which was molded out of a 3D printed mold. On top of the concrete base sits a 3D printed ring with wood veneer adhered around the face. The final layer is a 3D printed shade printed in natural color HIPS. Despite the range of materials, it’s a 3D printed lamp in every sense of the word.

3D Printed Lamp Shades to DIY Lump

Image of 3D Printed Lamp Shades to DIY: Lump

The low-poly Lump is a rather endearing 3D printed lamp shade. It’s pretty minimalist, granted, but it’s also incredibly easy to fabricate on a 3D printer. You won’t need any supports or rafts, so there’s no fuss or muss. Make a couple of these in any color you like, and have an instant upgrade to any standard light fitting around the home.

3D Printed Lamp Shades to DIY Deathstar Lamp

Image of 3D Printed Lamp Shades to DIY: Deathstar Lamp

The force awakens with this 3D printed lamp shade. How can it not, when there’s an imperial Death Star materializing through the wall of the living room? But putting aside debates about good versus evil for a moment, this is a clever concept that’s easy to print and assemble. The designer has also provided a baby night-light version for younger members of the Sith.

3D Printed Lamp Shades to DIY Zuzanna Lamp

Image of 3D Printed Lamp Shades to DIY: Zuzanna Lamp

Another 3D printed lamp shade by Samuel N. Bernier and his crew at LeFabShop, the shape of the Zuzanna resembles the delicate folds of a sheet of paper and can be used as either a suspension or a table light. It was specifically designed to be printed on a Zortrax M200 to take advantage of its ABS printing capability and 200 x 200 x 185 mm build volume, but you can attempt this on any equivalent 3D printer.

3D Printed Lamp Shades to DIY Seed Lamp

Image of 3D Printed Lamp Shades to DIY: Seed Lamp

The Seed is a futuristic 3D printed lamp shade that wouldn’t look amiss from an episode of Westworld or some other far-flung science-fiction epic. It’s an orb of two halves, with a smooth base and a top half made from concentric circles. A very nice project, and one that shouldn’t present too much of a fabrication challenge either.

3D Printed Lamp Shades to DIY LampiON Lamp Shade

Image of 3D Printed Lamp Shades to DIY: LampiON Lamp Shade

The LampiON lamp shade is a premium design, retailing for 15 euro, which is made of two separate parts modelled on a simple hexagonal grid. You can either use one or both parts in a single construct, layering one over the other, depending on your personal style. It looks cool, for example, if you print the “web” is a different color.

3D Printed Lamp Shades to DIY LEDLAMP

Image of 3D Printed Lamp Shades to DIY: LEDLAMP

This is a sturdy and chunky 3D printed lamp that’s assembled from multiple parts. It’s a nice design where the individual components can be color coordinated. But the height of the LEDLAMP is 440 mm, which is important to know because any attempts at resizing the pieces when printing will impact on the wiring and placement of the LEDs.

The Pumpkin Lamp, a.k.a. “La Citrouille D’Omar”, is a novelty item perhaps best saved for the Halloween season (unless you’re one of those folks with a pale complexion for whom it’s Halloween all year long). Print off several and pair them up with green light cables, and enjoy your light-up pumpkin patch.

3D Printed Lamp Shades to DIY Valeria Lamp

Image of 3D Printed Lamp Shades to DIY: Valeria Lamp

The Valeria lamp is a very sophisticated design. So sophisticated, in fact, it wouldn’t look amiss in the library of Ron Burgundy, with its mahogany shelves filled with leather books. The small dimensions of Valeria make it most useful as a table lamp, and it’s easy to assemble and print. This premium model retails for 3.99 euro.

3D Printed Lamp Shades to DIY Iceberg Lamp Shade

Image of 3D Printed Lamp Shades to DIY: Iceberg Lamp Shade

Like the Lump, the Iceberg is a 3D printed lamp shade with a low-poly design, but this item is more visually ambitious. Its angles have mutated and grown to an intimidating size. It should still be relatively easy to print, though. The Iceberg is a premium design that retails for 15 euro.

Another 3D printed lamp from designer Helder Santos — this time offered via the collective EUMAKERS umbrella — and we’re getting another strong Ron Burgundy vibe from the Z-Lamp. Reasonably certain that Mr. Santos is a fan of the “Anchorman” films… and there’s absolutely no shame in that!

3D Printed Lamp Shades to DIY Clasp

Image of 3D Printed Lamp Shades to DIY: Clasp

You won’t get much shade from the Clasp, but it’s a smart little ornament nonetheless. A disembodied hand has a tight grip on the light bulb, whilst the power cord and switch trails out just below the wrist. The cool thing about this design is its versatility; this 3D printed lamp can also be attached to a wall socket and keep ahold of your phone while it’s charging.

3D Printed Lamp Shades to DIY Monkey and Bunny Voronoi Lamps

Image of 3D Printed Lamp Shades to DIY: Monkey and Bunny Voronoi Lamps

These voronoi lamps are pretty dazzling, and you’ll want to dim the lights elsewhere in the room to see the full effect. Available as either “monkey” or “bunny“, the shades have been designed to cast some delightful shadows on the walls. Designer mingshiuan has actually created a whole series of lamps in this style, like a skull or a heart, and it’s definitely worth checking out the whole series.

3D Printed Lamp Shades to DIY Lampe

The Lampe is a great functional 3D print from designer extraordinaire Agustin Flowalistik.

With accessibility in mind, no screws or glue are required to assemble the Lampe, and it can be fabricated on any printer with a 120 x 120 x 120 mm printing surface (heated bed not necessary if using PLA).

3D Printed Lamp Shades to DIY Square LED Lamp

Image of 3D Printed Lamp Shades to DIY: Square LED Lamp

One more roll of the dice from Helder Santos, and he’s taking a step back from the “Anchorman” influence for a more retrofuturistic design. This is a simple, elegant 3D printed lamp designed to house a 60 cm 12V LED strip. It features a battery compartment, so it can be mounted without needing a power socket nearby. The Square can be 3D printed without supports, and doesn’t require glue or screws to be assembled.
