About: I am architect from India, I just completing my masters in advanced design and digital architecture from ELISAVA. I love computational design and fabrication, I love making things using same techniques.

Intro: Easy Awesome (ceiling/table) Lamp!!

Its one of the most amazing lamp I made. Its very easy and the effect of light is just amazing!

But i lost all the photos I clicked of the process! [my phone got stolen :`( ]

So I made a 3d to explain the process! :)

I hope you guys like it! and if you do Please Vote!!!! :)))

Step 1: Things Needed!

1. Plywood 4mm

2. Threads (single colour/ multiple colours)

3. Laser Machine

Optional Black paint

Step 2: Laser Cutting!

Use the file and cut the pieces from a wooden ply in laser machine.

i cut the base twice and stick them together to give it more thickness!!

Step 3: Paint (optional)

I painted the pieces in black. Its upto your taste!

Arrange all pieces from big to small to make things easy!

Step 4: Assembleee!!!

Assemble all the pieces as in image! from big to small and small to big!!

Step 5: Thread!!

Now pass the thread from last hole to first hole of the adjacent arm you can continue the thread along all the arms.

last-first-last-first-last..........

Use as many colours as you want of one!

Step 6: Tada Its Done!!!

Put it on a lamp or hang it on ceiling as you want!!!!!!!!

    It looks nice. I'm worried about how to keep it clean. Even the cleanest environment. If I make one similar, I think I'll go for monofilament fishing line. Should do interesting things to the light also, and be somewhat 'cleanable' with compressed air.

    Really nice design and making the complex out of simplicity.

    This is a really awesome project, and I'd love to try it! However, I don't have access to a laser cutting machine. Could you recommend another method of cutting the wood?

    Hey Ivan, I am glad you liked it. Just print the drawing stick it on ply and use electric saw and a drill.

    Or you can stick it on a good quality cardboard with good thickness and use a cutter! :)

    please vote!!

    I was just wondering. I want to make a couple of these and I don't have a laser cutter so could I use steel and my hydro cutter instead of plywood and a laser cutter?

    Hey! I have never worked with steel so i cannot suggest much. But if you do make it with steel :

    1. you might have to change the dimensions of the base(or maybe you can just weld it) thickness of steel will vary.

    2. it will get heavy! and the sharp corners, you might want to smooth them up.

    nevertheless you can even use saw or electric saw and a drill to make it in wood or ply or any other material.

    Let me know how it goes! :)

    and Pleassseeee voteee!! :*

    I sure will! My husband works in a fabrication shop and he thinks he can do it with steel and then weld it too. I will let you know my results as soon as we get time to try it and I'll post pictures! Thanks for the idea! So cute!!!

    Very neat lamp. Kind of reminds me of Daedric architecture from the game Morrowind. Or possibly Sauron's night light :)
