the idea of having changeable images for a lamp has always fascinated me and there has been more than one occasion that i’ve stared longingly at the ikea skugga lamp. this skugga hack by friederike definitely takes it a notch up and opens up loads of possibilities.
the original skugga and inserts that look more like toilet signs
it’s also pretty easy to do. just put together the picture you want using software such as photoshop. size it according to the insert that comes along with the skugga and then print it out on an overhead transparency. cut it to size and slot it in as you would the usual skugga inserts.
