Standing shrimp lamp

A light stand inspired by the movement of the shrimp.

Designed by Minsun Kim, 2017

Material: Painted poly-carbonate with airbrush, steel core, milled walnut base.

Inspired by the 'movement' of shrimp

 Inspiration comes from the movement and form of a shrimp. The connection of the shades that composes the lamp follows the structure of the shrimp.


Prototyping with chipboard for the connection of the sades. Several different materials were used to do further experiments. The internal structure was made of acrylic.
