urchin softlight / shape shifting paper lamp

with its elastic movement and shifting form, urchin softlight paper lamp invites playful interaction. Using flexible honeycomb geometry, the textile lighting expands and morphs into myriad shapes as you manipulate it with your hands. The sculptural lights create a curious motion akin to that of a sea creature, giving the luminary its unique name.

made from the same translucent white polyethylene textile material as cloud softlight and textile softwall + softblock, these pieces can be matched to create fluid, sculptural environments. The textile is water resistant, tear resistant and antistatic so as not to attract dust.
