Chilean designer Paloma Agliati’s Plamp! lamp is a blooming pendant light made entirely of recycled, recyclable, and biodegradable cardboard. Inspired by the need to reduce packaging, Agliati designed a beautiful lamp that needs no packaging at all – the product is the packaging.
Agliati’s clever Plamp! lamp keeps material use to a minimum by incorporating the product’s packaging within its design. A single piece of folded cardboard makes up the lighting shade and packaging, and it shops complete with a cable and a low-energy bulb. The box’s hexagonal construction helps save space during shipping, and the lid makes a surprising ornamental ceiling rose.
The lamp is offered in a laser cut arabesque pattern or a plain unadorned design. It is currently available at Molde’s mobile design gallery, their online shop or at the designer’s own website.

Timmeh, scratches, bumps, stamps, marks will make the lamp a more unique and interesting object, I think..
Teresa, try emailing the designer [email protected], she could probably send you one on the post!
It is so heartbreaking that every product that I would love to buy on this site is not available. Please inform us that this lamp is from another country and one must speak the language! That way I can be let down quicker!
unfortunately, the point of cardboard packaging was originally to protect the shipped object from bumps/scratches/etc. Having the lamp as its own packaging means that when you get it, its easily possible that there will be dents or scratches or marks on it.
