About Event



lampshade is a fixture that covers the light bulb on a lamp to diffuse the light it emits.

Students have to design a lamp shade that can be any type or any shape e.g. Hanging lamp, table lamp, wall lamp, floor lamp, by using waste material like Paper, newspapers, plastic bottles, disposal glass, Cardboards, plastic spoons,

Ice-cream sticks, rough clothes, wood, stone, wool etc.

Things kept in mind while designing lampshade :-

1-      There are four types of lighting to consider—decorative, accent, task and ambient. Understanding your purpose will determine if the shade needs to be broad and translucent (task and ambient) or colorful and opaque (decorative and accent).

2-      If the lamp is being used for a task light, how many people will be using it at once? The answer will determine how broad the bottom of the shade needs to be (the greater the audience, the wider the shade)

3-      Where will the lamp be placed? Generally, the lower the placement of the lamp (e.g. on an end table), the shorter the shade can be; the higher the placement (e.g. on an upper shelf), the longer the shade must be because otherwise the bulb and assembly will be in view.


Note: – Participants can be from any department or any collage, e-certificates will be provided to the participants and selected winner’s pictures will be posted on website/social media platforms. You have to submit the final product picture with you and your own video or pictures while making the lampshade on given mail within three days. The result will be declared on 25/05/2020.
