Through 3D modelling and printing, the Formaliz3d team were able to create a tailored shade design to complement the curved silhouettes of the Plumen bulbs – the gently sloping sides of Kayan Bulb Shape Lamp follow the organic outline. Kayan Bulb Shape Lamp contains punctured sides with which you can enjoy the bulb’s unique silhouette and still have the full brightness of the light projected onto surfaces below. The small openings allow light to escape creating intricate shadows and a unique atmosphere. “This project realized the promise of an object printing. We saw the beautiful Rumble range online, made contact with Formaliz3d and just a few days later printed design concepts started arriving at our studio that we could test and experience together with our bulbs. After a couple of rounds of changes The Rumbles had a new cousin and the Baby Plumen 001 and Plumen 002, a new inspiring playmate. Sometimes designs take years to produce. Our bulb designs certainly do. So what a thrill it has been to see this product evolve and resolve at the speed of light.” (Nicolas Roope – Plumen fouder)
