aiming at optimizing 3D printing technologies and integrating them into lighting design, munich interdisciplinary design studio werteloberfell experiments with the shape of a lamp’s flat part which can be printed very fast and as little material as possible. designed with different patterns and geometries, the lighting fixtures are stiff, flexible, deformable.
icosahedron geometry with a linear structure
inspired by famous paper lanterns by isamu noguchi, werteloberfell lamps’ structures are printed onto japanese silk paper, which helps to reinforce the frame parts. the studio experimented with all kinds of material but the paper performed the best properties serving the structure.
the structures were generated by a 3D printing software, which ensured a quick and reliable printing process. the collection will be presented at munich creative business week 2018 from 3-11 march as part of VICIS exhibition.
