Inspired by both the One_Shot.MGX stool and flower blossoms found in nature, this table lamp features a shade which collapses and expands to release or contain light. As with the One_Shot.MGX, the shade is 3D printed as a single piece, including hinges that in one movement, transform the shade from a bud to a blossom. And with the complexity of its design, the Bloom lamp succeeds in pushing even further the boundaries of 3D technologies. Images: copyright Thomas Duval and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
