Inflatable, recyclable, and super cute, Shira Keret [1]‘s Animal Lamps are shaped like your favourite bird or mammal. Based in Tel Aviv, Keret creates sweet luminaires from Tyvek [2] that emit a soft twinkling glow. Chickens, elephants, rabbits and even a rhino were carefully constructed from the non-woven white material, which was developed by Dupont back in 1955 and is frequently used for envelopes.

Keret’s animal lights [3] look healthy and well fed. The secret behind it is a recycled PC fan that inflates them when litted and magically makes them look nicely round. A graduate from Bezalel Art and Design Academy [4] in Jerusalem, Keret is part of Four’n’Five [5], a group of talented young designers that work from Tel Aviv’s Jaffa port.
