Elisa Strozyk ‘s Accordion lamp  is a sustainable throwback to the folded vintage paper lamps of the 1950s. Created through a collaboration with designer Sebastian Neeb, the Accordian lamp is a modern iteration of the classic lighting fixture. But whereas vintage fifties lamps were mostly made from paper or fabric, the delicate features of the lamp have actually been formed with a new, pliable wood material Elisa Strozyck simply calls “wooden textile”.
Elisa Strozyk’s wooden works are less fragile than her works made with paper — like the cut&paste Wallpaper  — but still maintain the same characteristics, as they are folded and twisted into beautiful forms. The Accordion lamp itself invites users to alter the lamp’s pleated structure in a manner similar to the way one plays an accordion.
A variant of this work using the same wooden textile can be seen in Strozyk’s more free-formed pendant lamp Miss Maple, which we recently reported on , her textile plaids , which are a mixture of wood and viscose, and the Accordion cabinet  (seen above).
