Breaking bulbs 3D printed lamps by Gässling

April 6th, 2014 by retail design blog

Swedish Gässling launches Breaking Bulbs, a range of 3D printed lamps capturing that split second in time when an object destroy on impact. The over-sized bulb-shaped lamps appear to shatter as they destroy when being dropped, smashed, and even shot. Breaking Bulbs are designed by Joakim Christoffersson, owner of Gässling.

Breaking bulbs are printed in a durable white nylon material. A very lightweight yet durable material well suited for many purposes. The shade is available in different colors on request. The lamps are powered by a 6W warm LED and are delivered with a 12V 110V/220V transformer.

The new technology of 3D printing is right now experiencing a rapid boom. Designs which previously was impossible to make are suddenly within reach to anyone capable of handling a CAD software. Very exciting is also the development of new materials. Today it’s possible to 3D print titanium, stainless steel, ceramic and a lot more.
