German designer Michael Wolke has created these grand sculptural Beute lamps [1] by overlapping thin strips of old cardboard. Taking on a modern and clean form, the pendant lamps hang from the ceiling like the top half of a bee hive suspended in a room. And with an ambient downward glow, the fixtures are a beautiful and useful feature for a spacious room.

Using layers of card, the structures are given a curved form — perfect for directing light and creating a soft and shapely appearance. Wolke’s designs often combine the useful with unusual contemporary formations, like his edgy wire benches [2] and innovative shopping-cart coat hooks [3].
