This isn't the first shaggy lampshade you may have encountered recently, but there is still an undoubtedly eccentric charm to the Gudpaka Lamp by gt2P. This mammoth of a pendant lamp covered in a thick and tousled alpaca wool, exuding the warmth and softness one desires in a light fixture.

Of course, these qualities are satisfied quite unconventionally, through the careful acquisition and treatment of wool from the llama's cousin. It has been hand-woven into alpaca felt and molded into the animal-esque shape of two furry lumps.

This form is constructed on an intricate frame of plywood triangles which is capped by a shell of heat-formed ABS plastic. The Gudpaka Lamp by gt2P (Great Things to People) is a "game of opposites," created through the cooperation of traditional and highly technical methods.
