Spider lamp from FORSÅ

Materials: 8 FORSÅ table lamp, 1 BLANDA BLANK Serving bowl d = 20 cm, 1 BLANDA BLANK Serving Bowl, d = 8 cm

Description: This is not a usual home made Ikea hack. As a designer I wanted the product look professional, so I turned to locksmiths to put the parts together and have them painted.

I bought 8 Ikea FORSÅ table lamp, and only used the arms and the heads. A custom-made cylinder is holding them and a Blanda Blank Serving Bowl (20 cm, painted black) is hiding the wires. A black hollow shaft is connecting the lamp to the ceiling, the cover at the end is also a Blanda Blank, but the smallest one.

    Nice craftsmanship but hardly creative. It’s a “Dear Ingo” lamp replica. I’ve made a similar construction, albeit linearly instead of the original circular design. I will upload it soon.

    This would be excellent with a 7.1 surround sound system and this speaker lamp mod. Place it over where a computer chair sits and you have a pretty nice system with all of the wires out of the way.

    Very nice. It seems like you would want the bulbs turned around facing upward? Like, it would be kind of intense having all those lights shining down at you.

    i think it’s truly creative, and you’ve the craftsmanship to do it right. Functional and beautifully artful. A one of a kind.

    Very nice. But check out that nice cabinetry in the background!
