Spherical playing card lampshade

Nick Sayers (whose Flickr stream is stuffed with photos of awesome stuff he's made) created this beautiful playing-card sphere lampshade, based on a similar IQLight design, uponwhich he's produced further impressive variations.

  1. I kept seeing “Spherical Card Playing Lampshade” but I couldn’t get the article to load via mobile bb… I really wanted to see a spherical lampshade playing Texas Hold ’em.
    booted up the laptop for nothin’

  2. I can’t imagine that would let much light through. Maybe it should be called a light-be-gone instead of a lampshade. It is beautiful, though. I love how the cards join to create perfect little stars and triangles. I wouldn’t even begin to know how to make something like this.
