At Wooj, we’re always experimenting! Sometimes our experiments go awry, and we’re left with printed lamps that don’t meet the exacting standards we set for ourselves.
Over time, we’ve accumulated some of these lamps and haven’t known what exactly to do with them. But since we’re a smol studio (in Brooklyn, no less), we’re really pressed for space. This has left us in a slight conundrum.
In the spirit of experimentation, we’ve taken cues from the art of glassblowing, heating up the lampshades -- returning them to a flexible and fluid state. This allows us to reshape them into unique forms which would otherwise be impossible to print or manufacture.
Each of these warped forms is completely unique. The process of forming them by hand allows us some freedom from the fixed nature of the manufacturing process we typically employ and allows us to impart more spontaneity into our Wavy Lamps.
- Distorted Lamps are sold AS IS.
-We will not accept returns but will do our best to accommodate exchanges for an additional $30 restocking and shipping fee.
- Materials: Corn PLA body; corn PLA diffuser; durable cloth-covered TPE cord with switch and flat wall plug; raw brass strain relief
- Bulb: 6W (40W Equivalent), UL Listed, 2700K (Soft Warm White), 450 Lumens, Non-Dimmable
Built Layer By Layer
Instead of using traditional manufacturing methods where material is subtracted in order to create an object, we make use of 3d printing using biologically derived materials to make our lamps. 3d printing is additive — that means material is added layer by layer to build the final object. No additional material is wasted in the process. It’s only a small step in trying to make our work as sustainable as possible
Made From Corn
We are proud to be making use of PLA, a corn based bio-plastic in our lamps. PLA constitutes the entirety of the lamp shade and the bulk of the base, and eventually can be composted.
