Made using 3D printing technology, the Fall of the Damned lamp by artist Luc Merx is intricately morbid. The naked bodies of anguished people suspended on the lamp shade look like sculptures that would be too heavy to hang from the ceiling. In reality, the lamp was made out of nylon through the use of Materialise 3D printing technology.
The new crop of 3D printers are interesting in theory, but when you see such a detailed and emotionally provoking example of their work, it becomes evident how truly innovative and game-changing this technology is.
From any angle you look at it, the Fall of the Damned lamp is a stunningly gorgeous creation that is worthy of the ceiling in any museum or art gallery.
