The Laser Cut Collapsing Volume Lamp That Folds Flat

We were just blown away at how cool this lamp looks. The diffuse glow of the light shows the complexity of the laser cut lampshade in a most beautiful manner. Read on to find out more.

This lamp is called Volume.MGX and was created by Dror Benshetrit and MGX. It's currently being presented at the Design Miami fair. The way it looks isn't the only reason why it's awesome. The lamp was carved out of a laser print of interlocking squares, using something called selective laser sintering. Once they are illuminated, the complexity of the shape is truly revealed.

The lamp plays with shadows and highlights, using the various natural effects of luminosity. There are hundreds of interlocking squares that make up this collapsible form. It looks really amazing and we hope that you're inspired by this to create some cool and different ways of playing with your lights. From the photos we have, it looks quite big, but as you can see in the video, it's just the size of an ordinary lamp.
