|Butterfly Ball Light By Diffuse Lighting
When I was 12-years-old I showed my 14-year-old cousin the newest silhouettes I made out of a department store catalog. This was the wrong thing to do on a summer morning. It marked me as a weirdo for the rest of the summer. She was more interested in the latest boy band. Boys? What are boys? I was 12.
Now I feel vindicated that I kept my papercraft hobby into adulthood and I am really digging one particular trend in lighting. Danish lighting sculpture that looks like papercraft. Remember paper dolls? Admittedly, this is far more advanced. The light displayed above is made out of X porcelain butterflies. Diffuse is not the only lighting company that is producing lighting fixtures of this kind. Tord Boontje also showcased a metal garland light that is just as dynamic and delicate.
