Chilean designer Paloma Agliati‘s Plamp! lamp is a blooming pendant light made entirely of recycled, recyclable, and biodegradable cardboard. Inspired by the need to reduce packaging, Agliati designed a beautiful lamp that needs no packaging at all – the product is the packaging.
Agliati’s clever Plamp! lamp keeps material use to a minimum by incorporating the product’s packaging within its design. A single piece of folded cardboard makes up the lighting shade and packaging, and it shops complete with a cable and a low-energy bulb. The box’s hexagonal construction helps save space during shipping, and the lid makes a surprising ornamental ceiling rose.
