MilleFori: a 3D printed lamp inspired by a still life painting.

Inspired by the painting ‘Still life with saltcellar’ by Pieter Claesz, designer Gabriele Crivelli (Cretea) developed a creation process that resulted in the MilleFori lamp. Geometric shapes of a glass depicted in Claesz’ painting were the starting point for the designer’s sketches. The lighting object was the 3D product winner of Europeana’s Food and Drink Open Innovation Challenge: a competition that challenged creatives to re-use digital content about food and drink.

‘Still life with saltcellar’ by Pieter Claesz (1640-45, Rijksmuseum) is available at:
