FOLD by Thalea Schmalenberg & Kasper Friis Egelund
Inspired by the simple shape of a party-fan, Fold combines the familiar paper accessory with a light source. By unfolding and placing the paper shade into the aluminium stand the table lamp enhances this pleasant yet playful interaction between subject and object. Fold contrasts paper and metal, craftsmen ship and industrial design and hereby finds an aesthetic balance between feminine and masculine connoted materials. The choice of different coloured paper and powder coatings or anodisation for the aluminium base gives the chance to find its own individual version.
