At Inhabitat, we're big fans of lighting designer Christopher Poehlmann and his nature-inspired designs, which is why we were delighted to see his debut of CP Lighting's new 3D printed pendant lamps at this year's ICFF. Titled the CP3D Blowing Leaves Pendant Collection, this beautiful series of contemporary hanging lamps feature a nylon 3D printed shade in the shape of swirling leaves. The plastic shade hangs from a turned aluminum body and wraps around the warm glowing light of a 5W LED.
Poehlmann has made a name for himself with his organic, eco-friendly designs such as his tree branch-inspired “New Growth” chandeliers and lamps. Digitally realized by his studio assistant Casey Gleason, his new line of new energy efficient CP3D lamps derive its 3D printed design from the iconic shapes of leaves in motion. The collection features three different lamp styles that differ depending on the shape and density of the leaf clusters.
The leaf-patterned shade also helps to evenly diffuse the directed light of the LED and transform the lamp into a warm and glowing orb of light. The dappled light and shadow cast by the CP3D lamps create soft and playful mood lighting. The plastic lampshades are available in white or dyed green.
