this is an innovative lamp I created for my 3D-printed homegoods shop, doublehead.digital. One of my primary goals at doublehead is to design unique objects that could only be created through 3D printing. To that end, the Lattice Lamp is composed of countless tiny struts which fuse together to function as a lampshade. It achieves the diffusion of light by partially occluding it and bouncing it off the struts.
this project was especially difficult and incorporated Grasshopper for Rhino with several plugins (including one called IntraLattice), simple electronics, and a great deal of prototyping to optimize the density and quality of the lampshade. That process is documented here.
