Introduction: IPhone Stand

Picture of IPhone Stand

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

- Geometry

- Patterns

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.
