The Ori Pendant Lamp is inspired by origami. In fact, the designer not only experimented with paper before creating the light fixture, he also watched many origami instruction films to better understand the artform and its application to product design. The result is sculptural, crafty and contemporary.

Conceived by Swedish designer Lukas Dahlén, the Ori Pendant Lamp takes on an abstract, geometric shape that features a symmetrical arrangement of folds around its length. Made out of metal, each panel has been cut halfway with photo-etching in order to create creases for folding. Inside, the Ori Pendant Lamp has been coated in gold to shed a warmer glow around the living space it is placed in. It is available in three different colors: white, black and gold.
