Midsummer Light - Pink

Regular price £69.00

A lamp shade made of paper. The layers of paper are cut into a floral lace-like pattern and draped over a light bulb to create the Midsummer Light.

A safety cone keeps the paper away from the light bulb and creates the form. The Midsummer Light comes flat packed.

I love paper, it’s such a simple material. I had this idea that it could be possible to take a sheet of paper and to cut such a pattern into it that it would become flexible in all directions, so you could drape it like a piece of fabric.

By cutting this floral pattern it also became something which was based on a memory of a walk in the woods and seeing the sunlight shining through the leaves of the trees.

The paper is Tyvek, a super strong tear resistant paper.
