The Perch Light is an avian-inspired lamp by creative Umat Yamac that looks and moves like a folded paper bird. The lamp takes inspiration from the folded paper origami tradition, utilizing synthetic paper materials to compose an ambient light that sits on top of a golden pedestal. The three dimensional bird has a geometric aesthetic that is modern as well as minimalist.

The lamp provides much more than simply a light source, thanks to the incorporation of movement into the design. The bird-shaped light is able to move like the animal it is designed to look like, thanks to its paper make and counterbalance frame. The light simply needs a tap to start rocking back and forth on its perch as if the bird is pecking away.
