So a relative of mine knocked over hers, rather expensive, Bourgie Kartell designlamp. Causing the foot of the lamp to break in 3 peaces.

After examining the break I noticed that only a removable plastic connector piece at the bottom was broken. Glueing the piece did not help, because on reassemble the piece would just break again due to the tension.

Therefore I made a 3d model of the piece. I'll print the model in a fablab next week and hope to fix the lamp with the replacement piece!

I figured it couldn't hurt to upload the model to thingiverse. Who knows someone else here broke theirs Bourgie lamp :)

I printed the part in a local fablab on a UP! Mini. The part printed very nice. unfortunately the part did not fit exactly in the lamp. The arch were the 3 outside cilinders connect to the center cilinder was hard to copy exactly, so this was a bitbto think. But with a litlle sanding the part fitted nicely resulting in 1 fixed lamp!

I will try and edit the model so the part fits directly from print.

Update 2:
I uploaded a version 2 of the connector. This part should fit directly without sanding.


Print the part and use it to reassemble the lamp.

Thank you so much, I have just fixed my lamp with your help. I thought it would need to go to the scrap heap until I came across your post. It was my first experience 3D printing and I was nervous about doing it but I gave it a go and now I have my lamp as new. Ready for my little 18month old terror to knock it over again!

Very glad we found this! No other way to repair this lamp. Many Thanks!

Nice glad I could help. If you want you can post a "I made one" ;)

Is it possible that you participate in the project with your interview?
I am looking forward to hearing from your soon.

that is very nice
