Oh, Scheisse! Faux-Exploding Light Bulb is a Real Fake Blast

The light bulb is such a familiar icon that it is almost painful to see it so deformed – sure to give any visitor a start and at least force them to do one double-take.

Hans Bleken Rud used 3D models to take and break the initial form of a typical bulb shape, pulling and pushing pieces apart, then reconnecting them with thin lines of support. He titles the end result Scheisse … feel free to translate if you need to.

The result is an effective blend of the ‘bare bulb’ industrial aesthetic and a quirky artistic surprise sure to impress clients of offbeat companies in warehouse lofts.
