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 by Meirav Barzilay

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

Papela by Meirav Barzilay

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