Orb Lamp
The Orb is small in size but makes a big statement, combining generative techniques and 3d printing to create an affordable, one-of-a-kind lamp manufactured on demand. Each Orb exhibits its own unique form and pattern of veins. Eco-friendly LEDs illuminate the Orb and cast dramatic branching shadows on the wall and ceiling. The Orb is both a unique piece of art and a functional table lamp.

The Orb lamp expands on our Hyphae lighting collection by combining our leaf structure inspired technique with a second process that generates the overall form of the lamp shade. The bubbly, globular shapes of hematite and other minerals that grow in a botryoidal habit inspired our sphere aggregation system.

Compared to the Hyphae lamps, the Orb exhibits more diversity of structure and pattern as the veins branch and grow across a 3-dimensional surface. The result is more complex, more tree-like. The Orb lamp is approximately 5w x 5d x 6h inches in size, although they vary quite a bit since each has a unique form.

About Hyphae
Hyphae is a collection of 3D-printed artifacts constructed of rhizome-like networks. Inspired by the vein structures that carry fluids through organisms from the leaves of plants to our own circulatory systems, we created a simulation which uses natural growth principles to build sculptural, organic structures. Starting from an initial seed and a surface, we grow a hierarchical network where nodes constantly branch and merge. The densely interconnected structure is at once airy and strong.

Lighting Specifications
The lamp comes with an LED light fixture, on/off switch, and wall plug. The LED fixture uses 3 watts of energy and produces 98 lumens. It features one bright Cree LED that will last for 6 years of continuous use. It plugs into a 120V or 240V outlet. The light color is neutral white (5300-5700k).
