3D printing keeps surprising us – so many items can be printed! Today we are sharing a 3D printed pendant lamp called the Twist pendant light by OliveBird and features a blade design permitting manual control of illumination with a simple twist.
The Twist’s 3D printed DNA results in a slightly gritty and matte black nylon plastic finish, a grippy texture that benefits the twist adjustment design. The amount of light is adjusted by raising the bottom ring until it is in contact with the top ring, then each rotated in opposite directions to open or close the woven shade design. Once the desired amount of light is reached, the rings are separated to lock the shade into place. This is a very functional design, ideal for contemporary spaces and those who love changing objects from time to time.
The Twist is one of several 3D designs created by Evan Gant sold through the 3D marketplace, Shapeways, including a simpler, yet elegant 3D printed pendant design without the twisting mechanism.
