Here’s the story behind this origami shade lamp that’s designed to fit into a shipping tube and require no hardware to assemble

Lampo - The origami shade lamp that comes in a tube

 

Kasia Ozmin, together with Lindsay Richardson, have spent the last year designing a lamp that can fit into a tube.

Inspired by threaded wooden toys and origami, and influenced by designers like Isamu Noguchi and George Nelson, they wanted to create a lamp that was both beautiful and functional.

Here’s how their design works. All of the lamp parts are packed in one single tube. No tools or hardware is necessary because they designed it so everything can be done by hand.

Because the shade is based on origami design, you simply unfold the shade.
