ZooM is a functional and surprising 3d-printed lamp. Created as a programmable object in generative design software, ZooM's structure is made up of hundreds of repeating elements, that together form a series of interlocking spirals. An example of '4d-printing', ZooM starts life completely assembled and flat packed - folding it out to its final shape never ceases to amaze
This is the medium sized ZooM, at about 20 cm diameter and 18 cm high. To complete the lampshade, simply use standard parts that can be obtained from any hardware store. Use a small diameter low energy bulb and make sure the lampshade does not get hot by maintaining a safe distance from the bulb socket to the lampshade.
