3D printing always surprises us – so many items can be printed! Today we’re sharing a 3D printed pendant light called the Twist pendant light by OliveBird with a blade design that allows manual control of the lighting with a simple twist.
The Twist’s 3D printed DNA results in a slightly grainy and matte black nylon-plastic finish, a grippy texture that benefits the Twist customization design. The amount of light is adjusted by lifting the lower ring until it touches the upper ring and then rotating it in opposite directions to open or close the woven screen design. Once the desired amount of light is reached, the rings are separated to fix the shadow. This is a very functional design, ideal for contemporary spaces and those who love to change objects from time to time.
The Twist is one of several Evan Gant 3D designs sold through Shapeways 3D marketplace, including a simpler, yet elegant, 3D printed pendulum design with no rotating mechanism.
