Swedish startup Gässling has launched this week Breaking Bulbs, a series of 3D printed lamps with a special design that captures the split second moments when the bulb was dropped, smashed, or shot.

Designed by Joakim Christoffersson, owner of Gässling, the breaking bulbs are 3D printed in a lightweight, durable white nylon material.

The shade is available in different colors. And the lamps are powered by a 6W warm LED and are delivered with a 12V 110V/220V transformer.

Each Breaking Bulb is priced at €399. There are three variations available on Gässling's webstore:

  • 'Oops I dropped the bulb' is a table- or floor lamp.
  • 'Wrecking bulb' is a wall lamp.
  • 'Bullet meet bulb' is a pendant lamp.

3D printing technology is experiencing a rapid boom. Designs which previously was impossible to make are suddenly within reach to anyone capable of handling a CAD software.

"I wanted to challenge myself and create object which would not be possible to produce using traditional manufacturing methods. The goal with the Breaking Bulbs project was to explore the 3D printing technology and find out how far I could push the technology. It's a project which stands somewhere between art and design, says Christoffersson.
