Gallery: Petter Thorne’s Ethereal Wet and Dry Lamps Use Minimal Materia...


Swedish designer Petter Thorne wanted to make a lamp that would use the least amount of materials and energy as possible, and his goal was achieved with these beautiful Wet and Dry lights. The glowing pendants are made from a single piece of paper molded by water, and they give off a wonderful subtle shine thanks to warm LEDs placed at their centers.

The process of making these ethereal lamps is quick, easy, and requires practically zero-energy. A single sheet of specialist paper is wet and then draped over a circular frame to create a volume. Elegant, subtle, and eco-friendly, the Wet and Dry lights are beautiful lighting solutions that keep sustainability in mind.
