The Mulhouse lamp project was a combination project we worked on in late 2016, part crowdfunded, part bespoke. We made and sold a batch to the general public through the European crowd-funding site Ulule, and manufactured a bespoke batch for an architectural project in Mulhouse, France.
The lamps were printed using PET filament from recycled drinking bottles and customers could pick their linen cable kit from 7 different colours. The architects we collaborated with wanted a variety of different lampshade shapes for the building and because the lamps were designed parametrically changing the pitch or number of sides was as simple as changing a number in an excel sheet - change the number of sides to 3 and you’ve got a triangle, 4 and you’ve got a square or 0 and you have a circle.
