Paper floor lamps
Paper floor lamps are something unusual and seem so strange for everybody. But it can be called innovation in designer and especially in illumination sphere.
Until chemists invented another polymer, the designers sew dresses and build houses out of regular paper. On the background of ultra-modern synthetic materials, allowing the creation any design without the frame and joints, the paper seems anachronistic, and wares from it is child’s play. But it is not so. From paper now make almost everything from lamps and furniture to houses. Moreover, the lifetime of these objects is counted by not just days or weeks, but years! If earlier these “crafts” are not taken seriously, but today, paper craft joined a reputable company and renowned brand producing a full interior collection.
More recently, experiments with paper were made by many young designers, who preferred to realize their fantasies in a cheap and available material. For example, young Frank Gehry chose in the late 1960sthis way of construction and realization the product – paper floor lamps. Now he is one of the most sought-after architects in the world. Creating paper models of their unusual curvedvforms, he noticed that the cardboard, glued together from several sheets, strength is not inferior to other solid materials and it holds the shape. Multilayer cardboard Gehry modeled the floor lamps, the production of which the Swiss factory of Vitra – is a pioneer of fashion trends — mastered in the 1970s. About the same time, Paco Rabanne was the first fashion-designers “sewed” made the paper floor lamps.
It was a bit f history about creation these wonderful lamps. It is also very important to know. But now, let`s consider the main advantages of paper floor lamps. Usually, when you use the general lighting, the light falls from top to bottom. But the advantage of this kind of lamp is that it lights up the room at the level of growth of the individual.
