Krill Design, a startup based in the Italian design hub of Milan, has introduced a gorgeous new 3D-printed lamp that resembles oranges because it literally makes use of orange peels in its materials.
Each 'Ohmie' lamp is said to be infused with the peels of two oranges, which are obtained from the waste stash of food industry sources before being turned into a powder and mixed with a special polymer. This mix is then processed into a filament that can be used in a 3D printer to construct the lamp. The end result is material that has the authentic texture and hue of an orange peel, besides being compostable.
Currently the subject of a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, this novel 3D-printed lamp can be reserved for a pledge of around $85.
