We are excited to announce that one of our favorite contemporary furniture design teams, Molo, just launched a brand new fold-up paper lantern called ‘Urchin’. Molo’s Urchin Softlights are a series of gorgeous expandable lamps composed of flexible-yet-durable honeycomb craft paper. Urchin embodies Molo’s versatile design philosophy and is as adaptable as their paper walls or stacking blocks, allowing the user to lift or push the softlight into any desired position. Watch designer Stefanie Forsythe styling her Urchin softlights in a flash intro here.

Molo‘s trademark tactile honeycomb weave material is designed for indoor use and can accommodate LED or compact florescent lightbulbs. The softlight comes in a variety of sizes and works well in groups for sculptural modules as photographed below. If their busy stand at 100% Design last week is anything to go by, we’re sure they will have orders coming in thick and fast!

    It’s sophisticated and elegant. Quite astonishing in both a sculptural and lighting level.
