Origami light fixtures and furniture have been inspired by the popular papercraft art most commonly associated with Japan. Designer Jiangmei Wu takes the intricate folding art that originated in China and turns it into an elegant masterpiece of collapsible interior lighting.
The origami light fixtures are handcrafted by the designer who thoughtfully constructed a collapsible LED lamp that can easily be folded into a flat sheet for shipping purposes. Wu uses recycled cotton paper as the basis for her beautifully soft light fixtures, which also allows for an ambient glow. When the lights are turned on, the light leaks more intensely from the creases in the origami shade, creating an elegant illusion that the floating orb is bursting with luminescent rays.
