The ALYA lampshades are made of stoneware ceramics, using a digital fabrication setup.
The 3D-printed ceramic lampshade embodies the potential of porosity to control light diffusion. This small-scale production represents a seamless marriage of the qualities of digital craftsmanship and sustainability. This allows for the creation of intricate ceramic forms that were previously impossible to achieve. The combination of the ceramic (stoneware) material and additive manufacturing, with its clear and linear design feature, give the shade its characteristic expression. The ALYA pendant lamp can be used as an individual statement piece or arranged in multiples, e.g. above the dining table or bar.
