Paper light: the Studio Snowpuppe origami lamps
Light, in December, is that of Christmas. Is that of the Christmas tree and the comet. Is that of the streets and shop windows. It that of the gardens and terraces.
Light, in December, is the table lamp on at 4 p.m. because outside is pretty dark.
Light, in December, is a reality made of happiness and pastel colors such as Studio Snowpuppe.
Located in The Hague, Netherlands, Snowpuppe Studio is made up of the architect Nellianna Van Den Baard and industrial designer Kenneth Veenenbos. Together they produce, design and distribute handmade lamps in small series, using natural materials such as paper and wood. Their goal? Transform, through paper, the cold light of energy-saving light bulbs in a soft, warm light, able to envelop the environments in which is placed.
The Studio Snowpuppe lamps however, are not only handmade and sustainable. They are also a wonder to behold. Inspired by nature – like the waves of the sea, chestnuts or butterflies – they reinterpreted in a modern key the ancient art of origami. Each model is available in classic black or white and in a multitude of pastel nuances. Even the cord color is customizable.
This is the light that I like. This is definitely the design that I like. Fresh, new, sustainable and never dull. A friend of mine yesterday told me: “The problem, if you go to Etsy, is you always buy something. You must avoid looking at it if you want to save your finances. “That is, if you want to avoid “the problem” do not click the link below. I must warn you, is at the own risk of your wallet. Otherwise, at the very least, we can always send a letter to Santa Claus.
