Patrick Jouin [2]‘s Bloom Table Lamp is inspired by MGX’s One_Shot.MGX stool [3] and the way plants respond to their environment. The digital technology [4] behind the lamp design involves rapid prototyping and 3D manufacturing [5]. The process starts with converting a CAD file (technical drawing) into a .MGX file, which is then used to print the image as a 3D object. Combining MGX’s state-of-the-art technology with creative input from Patrick Jouin, the award winning Bloom Table Lamp pushes the envelope in product design.
