Lower budgets have the Phrena Lights by Tord Boontje. Mid to higher priced budgets might consider the Folded Light Art of designer Jiangmei Wu. Each light is made from 100 percent recycled cotton paper and is made by using original origami folding techniques that Wu developed. And yes, each shade can be unfolded into flat pieces of paper, though it would be silly to try unless you’re an origami expert.
Designer: Jiangmei Wu, principal of Tacit Design.
Made from 100% recycled cotton paper and LED lights.
Jiangmei Wu is also available for commissions.
