"The first signature object for 3D printing technology in Scandinavia". This is how the Mybrain lamp has been described, among others by Stockholms Auktionsverk. The lamp was shown for the first time in the light exhibition Enlightenment at the Röhsska museum in Gothenburg in 2007, where Alexander Lervik experimented with the new LED technology and created 18 unique LED luminaires.
In the MYbrain lamp, Alexander has had his own brain scanned in an MR scanner at Karolinska Institutet. With the help of Professor Martin Ingvar, a stratified X-ray was made that resulted in 300 images, which were then cleaned and shaped into a three-dimensional image – an image that was 3D printed and turned into a lampshade.
Mybrain lamp has been produced in eight copies, four of which have been sold, purchased by, among others, the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm and the Röhska Museum in Gothenburg. The lamp has been published in a large number of articles, including the New York Times.
