Daru / Desk lamp

Daru
Daru

When we decided to use the cardboard as raw material, it was very important for us that the objects we design cannot be only paper-made copies of existing objects. We was searching for that paper-like form which can be typical for this material. This form should be able to give something – also functional and emotional – which can only be added by using paper. The structure of the lamp was inspired by a blade of grass which becomes a construction by only one lengthwise folded edge. The backlight located on the backside of the lamp cause lower contrast so our eyes do not get exhausted so fast as in case of a regular desk lamp.
