The latest lighting design from LZF Lamps [1] puts paper swans [2] to shame. The Spanish design firm used origami figures to inspire its giant, geometric pendant lamps, which debuted at this week’s Milan Furniture Fair [3]. Not only are the lights arrestingly beautiful, they’re crafted from eco-friendly materials. Consumers can recycle the spiky, polypropylene domes once they are finished using them.

Designed by Ray Power, the Alhambra lamp [4] is made from thinly extruded transparent polypropylene which is then cut, woven and transformed to give it this amazing origami [2] look. The pendant’s soft, relaxing, ambient light combined with its unique form is specifically designed to evoke images of Moorish architecture or oriental salons. Weighing just under 5kgs and available in 3 different shapes and sizes – spherical, long and diamond – the Alhambra is ready to help you find your own piece of Zen.
