MyLight is a lamp that is different for each customer, due to a manufacturing method (selective laser sintering) that allows for the production of an object without using a mold. The lamps are simply "printed" three-dimensionally.

We can now "print" an object directly from digital information. People have no idea yet what an incredible change in technology that is, and what that means for design. All design will become meta-design: objects can now be a range-of-objects, like in a family or a species.

Like zebra or oaks or strawberries, or, of course, people: no two are the same, but they are similar enough to be recognized. We designed the object in such a way that the differences would be easily readable, without making them too different. They can be big on top, big in the middle, or big below. They can have many holes or just a few. But they will always be private; each lamp you buy is different from the other; it is unique.
