Zenzational FOTO lamp





fotorobert

Materials: FOTO lamp shade

I bought a generic lamp ‘Foto’ and made a design inspired by the beautiful yet expensive lamps by Zenza.

I marked the design with pencil on the aluminium and drilled holes for three weeks (three sizes) and after a light polish the bowl is complete.

Hang the bowl upside down and use a diffuse lightbulb for a softer effect.

    Nice i am absolutely going to try a similar design
    BTW Since im Swedish i am ashamed of how the have treated you
    Narrowminded B******s
    They should instead see you as an IKEAMagnet pulling people to their stores
    What about twisting the name a lttle bit to prevent them from harassing you
    I cant say that i have any good suggestions
    But ill Think about it

    Great idea!

    I’m moving soon and I think this is the lamp I want for my bedroom, but I don’t know how to adjust a pattern to fit the shape of the lamp. ¿Could you explain it for us? ¿And is it easy to replace the lightbulb?

      @pablo….I just copied a design by Zenza but you can use any pattern you like. Just use a pencil to draw your pattern to see if it fits the bowl. Also don’t be afraid to make litte mistakes, that is what makes it look non-mechanical/handmade.

    I did this w/a colander. Looks really cool. A lot less work.
