Claesson Koivisto Rune  are set to unveil a new lamp  made almost entirely from paper pulp at this week’s Milan Furniture Fair . Dubbed DuraPulp, the lamp’s material is totally renewable and was conceived as collaboration between the architecture/design firm, lighting company Wästberg , and forestry industry company Södra . The lamp successfully redirects conventional paper-use methods in the lighting industry and develops a product so great that it still meets standard function and design expectations.
About a year ago, Claesson Koivisto Rune and Södra developed the Parupu chilldren’s chair produced out of the same DuraPulp material . The two companies came together once again to merge electricity and light into a fully-integrated paper product.
Wästberg’s philosophy of combining old wisdom and ground-breaking technology helped push the project along. Wästberg acknowledges that the use of paper popularized many “lamp shades” throughout history. This project modernizes the use of paper as a material by using it as structure instead of just as a diffuser. The paper light fixture is designed to take advantage of energy-efficient and long-lasting LED bulbs .
