The spectacular 3D-printed â€śHurricaneâ€ť lamp, shown above, â€ścreates a contrasting image of dynamics and statics, opacity and transparency, solid and void, and defined boundary and infinite reflectivity,â€ť states product designer Naai-Jung Shih.
When the table lamp is turned on its indirect lighting displays the tempestuous storm, and when turned off, it still is a gorgeous sculptural piece. Good design is all about function-and-form and this project received an Aâ€™ Design Award, among many other. Take a look.
