Kiev based Architect & Industrial designer Ivan Zhurba has Found, well, ‘Designed’ a new way to use your old iPhone & it is 3D Printed !
The iPhone Lamp, as it is called, can be used in more than one way than just being your Lamp or Table/Study lamp.
The Iphone lamp is designed to be an Eco-friendly lamp that uses the Flashlight on your iPhone, for reading books or listening to music while the phone is charging. Also, the lamp’s structure is designed in a way that it acts as a Sound Amplifier which boosts the volume of your phone when you play songs on it.
“It’s an Elegant, Simple Arm that holds your iPhone. The bottom of the iPhone remains exposed, it can remain plugged into a charging cable and can even pump out some Spotify or iTunes music over Wi-Fi !” – Ivan.
“Simply, This is the Best way to use your old iPhone.”
“Now I am working on versions for iPhone 6 & 6 Plus which will also be 3d printed. I have used all my favourite tools in this project. From the hand drawn sketches, I used 3ds Max to model it and then rendered it through Corona Renderer” said Ivan.
“The first real prototype was printed on 3d printer Ultimaker, you need to see real product, feel it make it as better as possible, then you can run it into market place.” He added.

The whole production of the is based on 3d printing, and the Lamp is priced at $5 for the FDM (Fused Deposition Modelling) printed lamp and $60 for the SLS (Selective Lasere Sintering).
The Lamp for now, only Fits the iPhone 4/4s & 5/5c, and the work on has already begun on a new version of the iPhone Lamp for the iPhone 6 & 6 Plus models.
