Sometimes a home needs something that is at once soft and sharp like the Vanity Pendant Lamp. Although it is fashioned out of felt fabric, the light fixture takes on an origami-like form that is all sharp folds and angles. This lends a sculptural feel to its overall design.

Designed by Rodrigo Vairinhos, an industrial designer born in Lisbon, Portugal, and based in Cologne, Germany, Vanity Pendant Lamp was created for German creative studio Neo. Not only does the Vanity Pendant Lamp look good, it is also efficient and effective, not to mention eco-friendly. It folds flat for easy and convenient portability and storage. It is particularly great for contemporary homes that have a minimalist direction. Stats for Folded Felt Lighting Trending: Older & Mild
