This project was made during the lamp design workshop directed by the Noah Norton from The University of Wisconsin-Stout in Menomonie. The workshop was held in Fablab Moscow. The task was to make a design of a lamp, but I decided to use my iPhone as a lamp source. Cheater, yes.
I used the ideas from Noah’s inputs, which were as follow:
- Combination of materials
As a result, I have 3in1 iPhone stand, which allow using iPhone as a lamp source. You can read with it, you can use it as an atmosphere lamp, and you can use it as a standard stand. Of course, you can try to use it with another phone, although you might need to adapt width of a printed part.
Step 1: 3D Printing
Print this part with transparent PLA.
If you have wider phone you may need to adapt the size of this part.
Step 2: Lazer Cutting
Cut these side parts from 10 mm plywood by a laser cutter.
Step 3: Finishing
After some finishing I covered it with a mordant for wood eucalyptus color.
Step 4: Assembling
Just assemble all the parts. I fixed them with a glue, although may be it is not necessary.
Step 5: Conclusion
As far as the visual design is concerned, I am not really happy with a combination of a plywood and 3d printed parts, though the whole stand turned out to be very useful for me, and I am using it every day.
