Cosmically Cool Lamp Built With 3d Laser Printing

Look at this beautiful Quin lamp from California artist Bathsheba Grossman. Notice anything special about it, D & D fans? It’s Bathsheba’s exploration on the dodecahedron. It’s so much more than a twelve-sided die though.

The intricate perforations and curvy undulations are not only are a shining example of the seamless blending of technology and art, but also serve to create quite a spectacular display of light. Bathsheba is intrigued by the space between art and mathematics, and finds naturally recurring beauty in geometry as well as the new shapes that she creates.

Bathsheba enjoys working with technology and in this case has collaborated with Materialise’s MGX to create this design using their Selective Layer Sintering (SLS) rapid prototyping technology. She frequently works in 3D printing and has also mastered a technique called subsurface laser damage in the creation of her intricate etched crystal sculptures.

Find the Quin lamp at Generate, and explore more sculpture with a highly scientific point of view on Bathsheba’s website.
