The Folding Lamp by Belgian architect Thomas Hick is an origami light that you can bend and fold into a variety of shapes. The Folding Lamp comes in 5 versions to match your style and your interior. To create the Folding Lamp, you start from a blank sheet of metal that folds along dotted lines, while playing with the order and angle of each fold. You can follow the instructions or let your creative instincts guide you.
Create your amazing design lamp starting from a flat sheet of steel.

According to the architect: “The idea of the folding lamp came when I decided to surprise a close friend of mine who was getting married with a personalized gift. I used to play around with paper and geometrical forms before, so I took the challenge of creating something beautiful from a plain sheet of metal. Due to other priorities, this project was put on hold for a while. One day, seeing my kids play creatively with scissors and paper it got me thinking about this forgotten project and inspired me to re-launch it. My vision is to create a crowdsourcing platform where people can bring their own designs and create their personalized lighting. The role of the platform will be to convert these designs into products by offering manufacturing, marketing and distribution services.”
