Milan 09: Hannover-based designers ding3000 present Tiffany Flowers, a light inspired by Tiffany lamps, at SuperStudio in Zona Tortona this week.
The lamp is made out of more than 500 laser cut acrylic glass pieces, which are joined by an environmentally friendly PU-coating.

Here's more information from ding3000:
For more than 100 years Tiffany-lamps have never really changed neither in shape nor in pattern. With “Tiffany Flowers” ding3000 lines up to reanimate this old-fashioned Tiffany-subject by means of contemporary shapes and materials.
For our new lamp-design “Tiffany Flowers”, which will be shown at the exhibition 'Hidden Heroes' (Superstudio Piu, Milano. Date), we rediscovered the technique of Tiffany. With this technique huge quantities of complex, large, colourful and richly detailed lamps can be produced in an economic way.
Unfortunately Tiffany lamps have not evolved in shape or pattern over the last 100 years. With “Tiffany Flowers” we have set a starting point to lend Tiffany a new fascination with the help of alternative joining techniques, new materials and a contemporary design. “Tiffany Flowers” is made out of more than 500 laser cut acrylic glass pieces, which are simply joined by an environmental friendly PU-coating. The motive is inspired by an unknown internet-beauty called “Tiffany”.
