Hanieh Heidarabadi / Make Lamp

I came across Make lamp designed by Stockholm architect and designer Hanieh Heidarabadi at Clerkenwell design week. It was exhibited as part of Platform and is the first time Heidarabadi has shown her products in the UK. The designer has created a brass pendant lamp with the intention that people will 3D-print their own shades.

Make lamp is a continuation of deconstruction. Instead of deconstructing form and shape Make lamp deconstructs the different elements of a lamp and the final design. The lamp is composed by a brass tube, steel thread and screw-nut for construction and finally a lampshade in polyamide. The lampshade is 3d printed and can easily be replaced by a new shape. By Allowing a numerous number of shapes Make lamp challenges the final design of a lamp as a product.

The idea was to combine 3D-printing technology with craftsmanship to make lamps...I wanted somehow to include the end-user, so everyone could produce their own lamp. You buy the brass tube and then you can 3D print your own lampshade – if you want to.

I made the brass tubes with a musical instrument maker in Stockholm – he usually makes trumpets and saxophones

The lampshades are only 0.8 millimetres thick, so they’re very thin - they diffuse the light in a nice way. Currently I produce two shapes, one cylinder shape and one that’s more round.

With the laser 3D printing technique, anyone can produce any shape, so who owns the idea of the design? Do you experience the product differently if you are involved in the design process?
