Paper and light isn't a new pairing, in fact paper has been used since ever for making lamp shades; but the Lamp paper by Claesson, Koivisto and Rune for Sodra is a completely different story. Why? Because the swedish creative group uses paper to build the entire structure of the lamp, not just a shade.
Getting the best out of Durapulp, a fully recyclable material made of paper and renewable biopolymer (PLA), they generate a tridimensional origami-like structure that integrates the wiring, which is laid between the different layers of paper and merged together by a hot-pressing process.
The result is beautiful in many ways: lightweight, intelligent, sustainable, performing and appealing. I love design when is capable of delivering such holistic products.
