Designer Luisa Robinson  recently debuted a gorgeous set of Dragon Tail Lamps, which look both dangerous and delicate at the same time. The lamps are made with chromed origami paper  and they taper to small curve at the bottom resembling a prickly tail, brining an edgy twist to the soft glow of light they emit. Based in the Philippines, Robinson integrates locally sourced organic materials  into her designs including palms, seagrasses, bamboo, abaca, and rattan. The lamps are available in white and parchment and come in various suspension and table varieties, making them fantastic focal points for modern interiors.
