3D printing gives new possibilities to designers, product developers, and craftsmen wanting to create truly unique objects. Interior design benefits from using this technology for new kinds of customizable furniture and decorations. Designer Paula Szarejko recently used her ZMorph 2.0 SX multitool 3D printer to manufacture flower-like modular lamps that can bring an early glimpse of Summer into your home.
Modularity and customization
The entire design has an organic, natural feel thanks to a slick stand topped with thin, translucent lampshades shaped like hollyhocks. Szarejko designed parts for a floor lamp and a smaller sconce, that could also be used as a chandelier. In both cases, a 12V power supply is hidden within the base of the lamp and provides power to all 3W LEDs through a series connection.
Modularity is the key feature of the 3D printed flower lamps made by Szarejko. They’re manufactured in parts, which gave Paula freedom to decide how tall the floor lamp should be, how big the chandelier, or how many lampshades they include.
It’s also possible to reshape these 3D printed flower lamps later on since the printed parts are joined with printed threads and not glue. The same goes for all repairs that can be done by simply printing and replacing a required part instead of the entire lamp.
3D printed flower lamps for every type of interior
3D printed flower lamps were made from PLA filaments. Paula used gray for the stand and translucent natural color for the lampshades. This combination made the lamps into elegant background decorations in her apartment but the design could also work with bright colors making them the central piece of every room.
The project was printed on ZMorph 2.0 SX using 1.75 mm Plastic Extruder. The designer also experimented with DUAL PRO toolhead and created colorful lampshades with the color mixing feature. Scaled down in Voxelizer software, these proved to be a perfect addition to a set of decorative fairy lights.
3D printed home decorations
3D printing enables a new level of customization in interior design that can be expanded even further with ZMorph’s interchangeable toolheads for CNC milling and laser engraving. This wide set of tools enables designers and creators to make their own decorations, unique pieces like rotating bookshelves, and even 3D printed furniture.
This way every home, apartment, and room can become more personal and homey.
