With inspiration from the furniture fair in Milan, Japanese origami and a deep-rooted respect for the environment, Swedish art director and designer Olof Nauclér has created a series of lamps made out of paperboard and LED lamps. Not only does the paperboard make the Urbanero lamps lighter in weight, but since it’s a local resource from Iggesund it also means fewer emissions from transportation.
“The LED lamps need a minimum of electricity and have an extremely long durability,” Nauclér says. “And if someone, for whatever reason, wants to discard the lamp, the paperboard can be composted.”
