This lamp is handmade from paper and it is not only ingenious, but beautiful. It is created in such a way that any joins or overlaps are integrated into the design and are evenly spaced so as not to upset the effect when lit. It is self-standing and easily folds into a mushroom shape around the light-fitting and then held together with magnets for a virtually invisible join. The nature of the material, handmade paper from recycled rags, means the light that is effused is calming and ambient, making it almost sculpture-like. It is completely wood-free and 100% recycled. If you appreciate beauty, clever design and handicraft this lamp is not just right up your alley, but it is thoroughly entrenched.
