Folding Origami-Inspired Illuminators

The 'Ory' Lamp by Il-Seop Yoon is Completely Portable

— September 21, 2021 — Art & Design
The 'Ory' lamp has been designed by Il-Seop Yoon as a portable illuminator for those seeking out a way to always keep a light on hand for when it's needed most. The lamp is constructed using a flat sheet of faux leather that will make it suitable for storage in a backpack or virtually anywhere else that a laptop can be stowed. The unit can then be folded into the dual-sided lamp mode whenever the user needs a bit of extra light when working at the library, coffee shop or office.

The 'Ory' lamp makes use of two chip-on-board (COB) LEDs that sit flush to the surface to ensure the unit maintains a slim design and doesn't require bulky components for use.
Trend Themes
1. Portable Illuminators - The 'Ory' lamp represents a trend towards compact, portable lighting solutions that can be easily transported.
2. Foldable Lighting Design - The origami-inspired design of the 'Ory' lamp showcases a trend towards foldable lighting fixtures that can be conveniently stored when not in use.
3. COB LED Technology - The use of COB LEDs in the 'Ory' lamp highlights a trend towards incorporating energy-efficient and space-saving technology in lighting design.
Industry Implications
1. Interior Design - Designers can adopt the trend of foldable lighting fixtures in home and office decor as a way to maximize space efficiency.
2. Architecture and Construction - The trend towards portable illuminators presents an opportunity for architects and construction professionals to explore new ways of incorporating lighting into building designs that are not obstructive.
3. Outdoor Recreation - The trend towards compact, portable lighting solutions in the 'Ory' lamp can be applied in outdoor recreational industries for activities such as camping and hiking, where reliable and compact light sources are essential.
