Kaigami not origami

In a moment of insanity, we purchased a design lampshade. The design has been created by Guillaume Lyons educated at Goldsmiths College, University of London.

Since his graduation, Guillaume has been working on a new style of design he called Kaigami, which can be described as the art of bending flat flexible sheet material to create three-dimensional functional items, in this case beautiful pendant shades.

We fell in love with the shade below. It’s exactly what we were looking for our newly decorated front room.


However, for some bizarre reason, I didn’t realise it’s going to come in a flat pack, so all the fun with putting it together belongs to us. Time for some origami…I mean kaigami. Watch this space!
