An Art Deco Side Table Lamp

本日のモデルはアートデコ風の卓上スタンドです。実物はどこかで販売しているようです。「art deco lamp」というキーワードでグーグってみたら現れました^^。非常にシンプル&クリーンなデザインでお気に入りですが、残念ながらデザイナーが不明です。Shade 12(パストレとラジオシティ)を使ってモデリングしました。

I’ve always wanted to model a lighting fixture with a large white orb. I found these lamps while searching for Art Deco-style fixtures:

Middle bottom: Art Deco Ambient Table Lamp with Glass Globe from antiquehelper.com. Right: Art Deco Lady with Etched, Reeded Globe from lightingstyles.co.uk. See Sources below for links.

I quickly fell in love with the one with the zigzag-like base, especially since I needed to model a lamp quick! The design’s quite simple and very Streamlined Art Deco :) Unfortunately, I can’t trace who the designer was. Here’s my rendered model:

The model in the foreground is lit, with a polished chrome base. The one in the background is unlit, with a brushed silver base. I made the base a bit wider than in the photo. The wireframe view:

I hope to model the other lamps shown in the photo collage above, someday. I guess I’ll have to force myself to learn how to sculpt people digitally…

    Neat! I hope you’ll model one of the Lady Lamps one day. ;-)

    These orbs remind of palantir in Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings epic. LOL

    • Hi! Thanks for dropping by. Palantir, hahaha! Yes, now that you mentioned it they do look similar.

      Did you know, last weekend I watched the LOTR movie series (the first installment, extended edition) again on DVD. Since “The Hobbit” will be shown this year I thought I might do some uh, review. :)

      Do you remember that I read The Hobbit when I was in my early teens (book borrowed from you, of course)? Sad to say, I don’t remember any of the details… Gollum did make quite an impression, though. I found him scary then.

    The models look amazingly real except for the orbs which aren’t perfectly circular.

    • Thank you! That’s quite observant of you. You’re absolutely right, the orbs do have an unwanted sharpness to them. I should have chosen a higher number of polygons when subdividing the object.
