Paper lamp

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.

  • Interview: Eugeni Quitllet
    When we first saw his name close to that of Philippe Starck we googled, with no luck. There was no human trace of Eugeni Quitllet and we thought, for a brief moment, that he could be an invention, some sort of imaginary alter ego created by his famously provocative partner. But shortly after all this revealed to be a product of our unquiet imagination: he is for real, thank goodness.
