Petter Thorne’s Ethereal Wet and Dry Lamps Use Minimal Materials and Energy

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.
