Our team member Daniel Lőrincz, interior, designed a wonderful cardboard lamp, which will probably be used in our house as well. We can count on this lamp not only for the interior design of the house, but we are already using it in our office!
When we decided to use the cardboard as raw material, it was very important that the objects we design cannot be only paper-made copies of existing objects. We were searching for that paper-like form which is or which could be typical for this material. This form should be able to give something ? also functional and emotional ? which can only be added by using paper.
The structure of the lamp was inspired by a blade of grass which becomes a construction by only one lengthwise folded edge. This way we have created a built construction which merely just holds the light source and by this it also defines its exact position in the space.
The backlight located on the backside of the lamp cause lower contrast so our eyes do not get exhausted so fast as in case of a regular desk lamp. In addition because of the double sided lighting we do not have to use other light source while we are working as it lights the whole room pleasantly reducing the energy wasting. The lamp operates with cold white LEDs which lights with the colour gamut of the sun at noon. This colour makes the customer wide-awake using the lamp because of our reflexes.
The Daru lamp is made of strong natural-coloured corrugated cardboard which fits well in both the technological and the biological cycle. This not only reduces but eliminates the production of waste.
Because of the easy shipping and storing the lamp can be sold unfolded. The customer folds the prefabricated body to the appropriate form. With this process even the users get involved in the creation and so the object itself becomes more important to them.
