THE REPURPOSED WOOD LAMP WITH
RECYCLED PAPER SHADE

This one of a kind wood base is made from repurposed wood, a casualty of a home renovation in the neighborhood. After rescuing these discarded beams, the wood was given a new life with a thorough cleaning and sanding. The distressed and worn look of the wood was preserved using an organic wheat paste finish giving it a matte and natural feel.

The 8” Round Shade is comprised of 48 hand folded origami boxes made from an abandoned Encyclopedia Britannica from the 60’s. The boxes are assembled with an acid-free, liquid glue to create a strong permanent bond.

The paper folds create a beautiful pattern and upon closer look, you can read excerpts of the entries and see pictures and maps.
