Unlike today’s design conditions, where emphasis is often placed upon mass production, branding and fiscal interests, the primary concern of this project is rather based on the essential connection between the user and the object, via the art of folding paper. Have you ever thought of folding your own origami lighting? What if everything was traced on the sheet itself and waiting to be turned into a form? Simply by letting users experiment and enjoy the process of folding their own lighting, I intend to create a bond between them while saving also money, thus reducing the time and manpower spent on the project. Double-layered paper, one of which is white handmade from Thailand is glued with special red textured paper in order to obtain the structural thickness required as well as ornamented reflections on the surface of origami lampshade. 1755mm by 690mm sized paper is folded in such a way as to achieve waved reliefs on the four sides of the rectangular body as well as size of 550mm l, 200mm w, 250mm h, and perfectly sited on its OSB base (550 x 200mm) which is hung from the ceiling by red cables.
