Designed by David Graas, this unique bulb shades has a shape of skyscrapers that seem to grow directly from the bulb. It was inspired by the evolution of high buildings that become taller and taller. And if these buildings are flipped upside down, it looks like stalactites that grow over time. This inspiration created a unique bulb shades that will decorate your ordinary bulb into a unique and interesting hanging lamp. More description by David Graas:

Stalaclights are 3d printed bulbshades showing skyscrapers that seem to grow directly from the bulb. Since LED light hardly emits any heat, it is now possible to connect a light shade to the bulb itself.

The intricate design of the shades are inspired by the Art Deco era, a time when the first skyscrapers appeared in big cities like New York and Chicago.

Nowadays every major city is dominated by high rise buildings. Their height steadily increasing in time, fuelled by the desire of their builders to realize the highest building of the world. If you would imagine these cities turned upside down it would look just like stalactites growing from the ceiling of a limestone cave. Steadily growing in time with every drop of ground water seeping through the cave’s roof.
