Chilean designer Paloma Agliati [1]‘s Plamp! lamp is a blooming pendant light made entirely of recycled, recyclable, and biodegradable cardboard. Inspired by the need to reduce packaging [2], Agliati designed a beautiful lamp [3] 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 [4]. The box’s hexagonal [5] construction helps save space during shipping, and the lid makes a surprising ornamental ceiling rose.

The lamp is offered in a laser cut arabesque pattern or a plain unadorned design. It is currently available at Molde [6]’s mobile design gallery, their online shop or at the designer’s own website [1].
