LED Bulbs with 3D Printed Skyscraper Shades: Stalaclights & Huddle

by Lambert Varias

One of the advantages of LED bulbs over incandescent ones is that they generate significantly less heat. Product designer David Graas capitalized on that benefit by creating lamps with 3D printed “bulbshades”, which are diffusers that sit directly on the LED bulb.

David’s newest bulbshade design features inverted Art Deco skyscrapers, hence their name Stalaclights.

While I appreciate the novelty of Stalaclights, I actually think that they’re more pleasing to look at when they’re upright. The one that works upside down is David’s first 3D printed bulbshade, the Huddle.

You can purchase both Stalaclights and Huddle from Layers in Design. Stalaclights cost ~$200 (USD) while Huddle costs ~$170 each. Each bulbshade comes with an LED bulb – 5.5W for Stalaclights, 5W for Huddle – an 8ft. cable, a lamp holder and a ceiling cap. I can see geeky bulbshades becoming a thing… for about a tenth of these prices.
