Many urban light fixtures are doing away with traditional lampshades for a few reasons, one of which involves the fact that they don't pack up very well; enter the ZooM Lampshade. The ZooM Lampshade is a 3D printed design that is flat-pack friendly to ensure that it is not ruined when people need to stash it away for one reason or another.

Designed by Dutch designer Michiel Cornelissen Ontwerp, the ZooM Lampshade is a pentagonal arrangement of interlocked plastic spirals. Cheaper to make and easier to ship, the ZooM Lampshade is available in a variety of different colors including black, white and blue. Chic and contemporary, it is easy to assemble. Fast Co Design points out, "Thread a light bulb cord through the center and watch it pop out, like a tent, into a classic lampshade shape."
