I wanted to share my latest project on the Glowforge that has been on my list of things to make for over a year. I finally got around to making a cardboard lamp using over 200 pieces of laser cut stacked cardboard pieces. I’m sure the one in the Glowforge promo video had a lot more than 200 pieces, but we’ll save a project of that scale for another day.
This cardboard lamp design was inspired by an architecture project designed by Zaha Hadid Architects in China. It’s a round and tall building with the world’s tallest atrium in it, which you could see going from the bottom of the building all the way to the top. I was also inspired by a double helix and decided to cut out 2 voids that wrap from the bottom to the top of the cardboard lamp.
If you’re interested in the process of how I designed and made this cardboard lamp, feel free to check out my latest video on my new YouTube channel! Let me know what you think .
