Organic 3D Printed Lamp ‘Ohmie’ Made From Orange Peels

Organic 3D Printed Lamp 'Ohmie' Made From Orange Peels

A plastics-free future doesn’t seem possible, but we are seeing manufacturers cutting their percentage of plastic use by combining it with more natural, non-petroleum-based materials. As one example, Italian design studio Krill Design is launching Ohmie, a modern lamp 3D-printed from discarded orange peels and an unspecified “biopolymeric base.” They claim the resultant material is “fully compostable.”

The form of the lamp itself is sculptural and visually interesting, vaguely recalling a bust. It’s pleasant enough to look at, if a bit odd.

You can clearly see the printed layer striations on the inside, yet on the outside they’ve convincingly achieved an orange peel texture.
