High Design Meets Papier-Mâché

Designer uses paper form that is both sturdy enough to last plus translucent enough to allow light to shine through.

Designer harry Allen has created a new range of lighting called ‘Paperwork’ for furniture manufacturer Hive. The designer uses a special type of papier-mâché that is both sturdy enough to last plus translucent enough to allow light to shine through.

Commenting on the work, Designboom says:

The traditional lamp designs are recreated using the paper mix, creating a contrast between the form and the material from which it is constructed. To pronounce the texture and silhouette, of both the table lamp and lampara, a graphic outline surrounds the original shape.
