Gorgeous 3D Printed "Lacelamps" Cover Entire Rooms in Intricate Patterns

Artists Linlin and Pierre-Yves Jacques used 3D-printing technology to create their first lighting collection called Lacelamps. Comprised of two stunning lamps, each includes an intricate translucent lace pattern that's set against a glossy black bell. They look beautiful when turned off, but once they're switched on, the entire room is engulfed in the lamp's gorgeous pattern. Its small details are now magnified on the walls and ceiling for a dazzling effect.

The designers were inspired by traditional lace and digitally sculpted its characteristics. They say that the process allowed them an opportunity to bring their extravagant ideas to life, and to produce enhanced carved details that couldn't be completed without the help of 3D printing. We see minuscule shapes cut between the thin white stems and textures that imply the look and feel of real lace.

Lacelamps come in two styles: the Sky lamp and Land lamp. While they are similar looking, the Land piece includes a crystal resin base so you can set it on a table.
