Im a big fan of indirect light. So when I looked at my existing main lampshade I had an idea to make it more indirect. Under the light bulb you can place mirror tiles which should spread the light out to the ceiling. You have to fit the bulb socket to your lamp and the angle of the tiles could also be adjusted to you room size.

I reworked the idea now and designed a sleeve which is screwed around the lamp socket and bracket which clamps down a round mirror of 20cm diameter. The whole construction con be hold together by construction wire, which wont melt under the heat of the lamp.


Printed in PLA, 2 shells, 20% infill.
I used 2mm thick wire but green garden wire is also possible.
The mirrorlamp.stl is just the concept art,

The sleeve is printed 2 times and screwed together around the lampsocket (not the bulbsocket).
The bracket can be printed 4 or 8 times depending on the size of the mirror, but 4 should be enough.
Then you string wire from the sleeve to the brackets and under the mirror from bracket to bracket to secure the mirror from falling out.
