This flat packed lamp follows a shift towards more economical and environmentally friendly production and shipping practices that has benefits for everyone, from the design and the manufacturer, to the truck driver and the eventual owner. Arriving in a single slender box, the Kavo DIY Table Lamp is cheap to make, efficient to pack and easy to build by the buyer.

Laminated birch and American walnut wooden panels are cut to form the silhouettes of the archetypal table lamp. Two frames are made for each model, suggesting the familiar shape of an illuminator, creating a stand and remaining open to optimal illumination throughout the room. In a world where consumers are so detached from the processes of fabrication, this product offers an interactive opportunity in its assembly, made more affordable but cut costs at the factory.
