Designer Jiangmei Wu, a faculty at Indiana University and principal of Tacit Design, has created a series of folded light fixtures that are made from 100 percent recycled cotton paper and LED light bulbs. By using original origami folding techniques developed by Wu, each light shade can be unfolded into flat pieces of paper.

Wu is trained in and have practiced design across a wide range of disciplines: interior design, graphic design, interaction design, architecture and urban design. Through the use of different scales, media, and technologies, Wu is interested in understanding how elements of design, material applications, as well as construction techniques, influence one another and together transcend boundaries between the different disciplines. She believes that the interaction between different experiences enriches the mind and encourages one to search for a plurality of meanings in design.

Recently she has been investigating the tectonic relationship between form/space, surface texture, and poetic expression of construction through the art of origami, as well as sustainable design through the use of recycled materials and energy efficient technologies.
