Stockholm 2011: French designer Emma Marga Blanche presented these pleated lamps as part of 20 Designers at Biologiska (see our earlier story), which she co-curated with Fredrik Färg during Stockholm Design Week.
Called Rhubarb, the lamps are made from folded polypropylene and fan outwards from their bases, creating a cluster of precise but organic forms when positioned together.
The lamps were displayed on circular landings at the Biologiska museum in Stockholm, surrounded by a 360 degree diorama of stuffed animals and sea birds.

Here's a little text from Emma Marga Blanche:
A pleated armature, like an elegant rhubarb, that grows directly out of the earth.
It is a series of lamps made of folded polypropylene which created a light atmosphere of vegetation.Symmetric and organic at the same time.
