Product designer Meirav Barzilay of Tel Aviv has designed this crumpled papery pendant light that comes scrunched up in a ball.

Called Papela, the lampshade is made of paper-like Tyvek material allowing it to be reshaped  and crumpled as desired without tearing.

The shade is hand-stitched together and comes in two different colours.

Here's a tiny bit of text from the designer:


PAPELA

Papela is a playful paper lamp. Crumple, squash and reshape it as you like.

Papela is delivered as a paper ball, which by a simple set of actions transforms into a unique wrinkled lampshade.

Its minimalist structure is created by thread stitches only, hand sewn out of a colored paper sheet. Papela is available in two different designs.

    This would look so fresh in a lot of interiors by breaking up clean lines, such a simple idea too. And for once a genuinely ethical product without all the usual eco marketing blurb.

    is it really so ethical? Tyvek is a petroleum product that does not have many recycling options outside the U.S. I guess it does last a long time and in this application "damage" won't be an excuse to throw it away. And it flat packs, sort of.

    Actually when I first saw this product I didn't like it at all, but the more I think about, the more it grows on me. I agree that duplicated in a minimal restaurant interior, it would look very good. Not so good in my studio though, would just blend in with all the real crumpled paper.

    I do not really know what I think about it, but very different, I must say. Perfect it is recycled material. It can sure get someone to buy lamp
