Lamp A4 is a small, fully foldable lampshade thought as a decorative lighting object that can be hang from the ceiling, shelf or simply placed on a surface. Multiplied can give a special illumination effect.
Originally designed and tested using traditional cut and fold manual techniques, recently manufactured in Spain in a small scale with the use of the traditional technique of die-cutting.
Prior to assembly this lamp is simply a thin, flat sheet of material. The idea is that these light and thin sheets can be posted in a very cheap and eco-friendly manner in typical A4-size envelope. The customer can quickly and easily fold and assemble the lamp, becoming part of the making process.
Employed materials are: non-toxic parchment paper, 100% recyclable polypropylene, plexiglas and metal clips.
