Lampshades inspired by origami.
Not your usual fold. Designer Rachel Young writes from New Zealand, "the Fold Lampshade is inspired by origami, the art of folding paper. It began with a fold which I had created and has evolved into the lampshades' current form.". She individually hand folds and assembles the shades which are made from plastic. The shade is the first object in a growing collection that investigates both what origami techniques can offer, and the challenges when applied to functional objects. This design must have been a challenge.
