The Armadillo lamp shade from New Zealand-based company Eco Effect is a flat-pack lamp shade made from recycled eco-board that is quick and easy to assemble. Armadillo means “little armored one” in Spanish — we like to think of our Armadillo lamp shades as a type of armor for your little lightbulb. Armadillos can also walk underwater (but this lamp cannot). The lamp shade is recyclable and low CO2 emissions were produced during its production.
