The pleats give the long, thin lamp stability.

Here's some text from Frey:

--

This desk lamp or console table lamp was born from the association of two different universes; the softness and elegance of the haute couture pleat meet the rigidity of carbon.

It is a subtle mix of two worlds: this object represents the encounter of an ancestral know-how with the latest technology. It was made with the assistance of a Formula One parts supplier.

The pleats are not only esthetical, they also add some rigidity to the long and thin structure. In addition, they also hide the leds.
