Architect and designer Margot Krasojević shows off the beautiful possibilities of 3D printing in her latest work, the Lace LED. Made from recycled post-consumer plastics, the LED light diffuser gets its lace-like quality from its layers of geometric shapes that fan out from a central point.

The Lace LED is designed as a suspended work of kinetic art. The diffuser is hinged on a pivot that rotates within a frame to create different patterns of light and shadow. “These complex shapes direct LED light through the entire pattern, which diffuses, deflects and refracts light creating a moving shadow whilst focusing it,” write Margot Krasojević Architects. “The form is the antithesis of the mass-produced recycled bottles and waste used in its fabrication.”

The diffuser’s intricate parametric pattern was created from a digital modeling program. In addition to recycled plastic, the Lace LED is 3D printed in ceramic, polymer, silver, and brass.
