3D printed fist lamp by das happy medium stands ready to light up homes

austrian design studio das happy medium defines puno, its latest creation, with lots of character.
conceived as both a table and wall lamp, the 3D printed product is a polygonal structure of a hand that meets the straightness of a fluorescent tube light. interestingly, the name of the lamp derives from the spanish word ‘puño’ which translates into ‘fist’. as a result, the product stands gracefully towards its user, appearing as though ready and willing to light up the room.

to guarantee the highest quality, das happy medium‘ s puno lamp is constructed in austria alongside e-manufacturing specialists in st.andrä-wördern. the fist is initially 3D printed and painted in either black or white. later, the finishing touches are applied in the designers’ studio based in vienna.

as mentioned above, the lamp is constructed from a 3D polygon model of a fist which has also been laser sintered from polyamide. this premium material lends arm-like stability to each finger. light is provided by an osram liniestra S14D, available in sizes from 30cm up to 50cm. the model is mounted on a premium and CNC-milled brass base allowing for wall mounting or standing use. the lamp is also available as a pair with a right and left hand.
