Folding paper/cardboard lamp

The aime of this project was to understand the behaviour of material with folding technique and what limitations we were facing with this material. In our case it was cardboard/paper. Hence with a 1mm thick black cardboard, we created a lamp which explored the possibillityes of structuring with a cardboard. We figured out a way to make a very rigid structure by folding the cardboard in a triangle. Exploring different sizes and we concluded in using the same size of triangles throughout the lamp and making the structure by composing those triangles on top of a solid base holding the light bulp.

The lamp gives a mixture of a direct light and diffused. Being able to see the bulp from some corners
