The R16 Lamp is a gorgeous pendant light fixture that's made from cardboard. Cardboard is soft, yet strong and easy to source, serving as inspiration for material-minded designers who are searching for sustainable alternatives. The designers behind this lamp found themselves so overwhelmed by the prevalence of cardboard tubes required for shipping that they created an object where "The shipping tube for the self-assembled lamp turns into the housing for the lightbulb."
The tube the lamp arrives in has been pre-cut, leaving the consumer to pop out the panels and hang the fixture. The R16 Lamp has a rugged and industrial design and serves as an example of sustainable and waste-reducing home decor.
