float——paper lamp / Lamps and lanterns

float——paper lamp

The paper lamp uses paper as its basic material, applying and improving the ancient technique of papermaking. The paper pulp in the pool is gently refloated, and covered over the container with hands. As the time passes, water evaporates and the shape of the lamp is fixed. The pure and white paper lamp has the drape effect like cloth, with a touch of lightness and elegance. It makes one feel like the gentle breeze, or the breathing of flowing water, the pulse of the natural. When the lamp is turned on, light flows out slowly along the paper lamp, reflecting the unique texture of the bamboo pulp.
