Bloom is a parametric pendant lamp created with Grasshopper 3D. This instructable will cover how to cut and assemble one, as well as the concept behind the GH definition and how to manipulate the design.
If you don't have access to Grasshopper, you can use the provided templates in AI and DWG format to cut your own. If you don't have access to a laser cutter, but have lots of free time, it's still possible to cut by hand with an exacto.
1. Material - Anything thin, flexible and cuttable. I used a wood veneer. (You can try a rigid material if you're feeling lucky and use the GH definition with the kerf bending option)
2. IKEA Hemma pendant lamp cord http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/1017581...
3. 1/8" metal brads for attaching the pieces (plastic rivets may be a more elegant and permanent solution)
4. 6 bolts #6-32 x .5" (a more elegant fastener might look more... elegant)
5. 12 machine nuts #6-32
6. 3D printed replacement part for the IKEA cord, file attached (this is not required, but if you don't use it, you'll have to figure out another way to attach the lamp).
