laser engraved lampshade

An interesting take on a lantern.  It fools the eye into thinking that the flattened design is actually in three dimensions.

Studio Cheha improved on an earlier iteration of their design. They have made the LED lights brighter and also included a dimmer switch—this enables you to choose your desired lighting experience, from decorative to practical.  Thick sheets of acrylic are laser engraved with intricate lines into lampshade silhouettes. The optical illusion is created once the lights are switched on and illuminate the fine lines, producing a sense of three dimensionality.
