Yu Jordy Fu's recycled paper Cloud Lamps launched in early 2009, so we're about a year late on this one (so like a century in real life time). But since SHFT just got going a couple months ago, and since the lamps are so AMAZING, we figure it's okay to revisit.
Handmade from recycled paper, the Cloud Lamp Collection takes a distinctly contemporary approach to the ancient Chinese art of paper cutting.
â€œFor thousands of years we used paper to write, paint and communicate our thoughts, dreams and desires," explains Jordy Fu, "Paper cutting is a unique art form, Chinese women use this graceful and intricate media to record the joy and surprises of their lives and decorate their homes.â€
Because they are cut, folded and sculpted by hand, no two lampshades are the same.
Treated with a non-flammable spray, the stunning shades fold flat for easy shipping or storage and can be used as hanging, floor or table lamps. Just add a low energy light bulb and you've got yourself a unique, envronmentally friendly design piece.
