It was a real pleasure to spend that time creating this lamp. The smooth light that it provides reminds me of the one from candles - a delightful addition for every home.
Folding precisely all those pieces of paper and joining them together was a good test of my patience. I actually gifted it to my girlfriend, but I was missing something, which I found with the solid base. Mixing paper with wood, two of the things I like the most, was a great experience. The solid wood was treated with natural oils on a few coats, which provided a great and smooth finish, that combines well with the paper.
The unique design of this lamp along with it's irregular polyhedral form for makes it an awesome decorative addition to any part of your apartment. It immediately catches the eye during the day, and provides awesome soothing atmosphere when it's working. It's solid wood base makes the construction feel sturdy. The snow white top fits great to any interior design and the bright red cords adds the touch of a contrast needed.
Because of it's tracing paper, the lamp provides a very smooth and cozy light. It's most suitable for the living room, corner shade or besides your bed. The perfect romantic weapon ;)
The top is an origami piece made out of low opacity tracing paper. The modular polyhedral shape consists of 30 units (total of 390 folds) which are connected together without any glue.
The base is made from a solid beech wood, finished with all natural oils including carnauba wax, bees wax, seed oil and coconut oil.
Inside this beauty there is an energy efficient E27 LED* light bulb.
The lamp comes along with a 2 meter red cord, with a Type C European plug* at the end.
* Each lamp can be made with different light bulb socket or cord plug depending on preferences.
The total dimensions of the lamp (including lampshade and base) are:
Width: ~25 cm (10 inch)
Height: ~25 cm (10 inch)
Thickness: ~25 cm (10 inch)
Total weight: about 1 kg
The base itself is a 14x14 cm square hard wood, about 5cm thickness.
The lamp is made of special FSC certified paper which can last many years. It can be easily cleaned using a feather duster, blow the dust away using low-powered vacuum cleaner, or simply swipe it off with a dry cloth.
The lamp is to be used with European Standard (ES) E27 energy-saving or LED lightbulb only. They are pretty common now and can be found in any supermarket. It's absolutely necessary to replace it with energy-saving or LED one only, as the lightbulb stays inside the paper construction and should not generate heat. Each package provides instructions about how to re-install the bulb.
