folding paper lamp by Kouichi Okamoto

From the website:

This beautifully unique lampshade is expertly handcrafted from Denguri paper found locally in the Shikoku region of Japan. The honeycomb paper diffuses the light creating a soft, gentle glow.

It is designed by Kouichi Okamoto, and manufactured by Kyouei Co. Ltd., Japan.

He’s got some rather impressive and unique design concepts- you can see some more information on his designs here.

This is a really neat design, and I like the shipping/packaging of it. I’m wondering what this Denguri paper is?

    It’s pretty crazy stuff. I wonder what kind of machine they use to make this…

    I always think about how much I could automate my tessellation processes, to avoid the tedious repetitive handwork!
