Dome+: Lightweight Lamps Crafted from Paper and Cement

Dome +: A Lightweight Lamps Crafted from Paper and Cement by Rita Koralevis

Cool urban features and raw organic elements are brought together in the design of the Dome+ lamp through a play on textures and contrasting yet complementing materials. The lamps are designed by Paper Up! founder Rita Koralevics, an artist and designer who creates handmade paper objects using recycled materials. The Budapest-based designer has a passion for eco-friendly handcrafted products and modern design, and the Dome+ lamp exemplifies this perfectly. Shaped like a dome, the lamp is made from cement and paper, a combination that ensures it is both lightweight and tough. The heavily textured surface boasts a line pattern and is complemented by a smooth bamboo strap which can be used to tilt the concrete section to direct the light, making it a perfect fit to your own interior. A textile covered gray cord connects the concrete and wood elements, while metal bolts and nuts add an industrial accent to the design. Ultimately, Dome + is designed to add a creative accent to living spaces or commercial settings but it also offers a playful take on eco-friendly lighting. Photography by Ákos Sarkadi-Tóth.
