(PRWEB UK) 24 October 2013
A design collective from Austria, MostLikely, have unveiled their creation of a poster that can be cut up and folded into unique lamp shades, reports De Zeen. The DIY lamp shades, as they have been called, use cartoon animal artwork from Vienna based artist BOICUT for the designs.
Maik Perfahl and Wolfgang List are the designers behind the lamp shade, which arrives rolled up inside of a tube, much like any poster. This can be used as a 2D picture for display, or it can be cut up, folded and stuck together to create something entirely different. The resulting 3D pieces are intended to be used for as lamp shades, stacked on top of each other to create a totem pole, or even worn as masks.
The lamp shade’s designer said: “Until now we only produce lamp shades in a simple white design. Since sometime we have the idea to bring more colours in our world and to offer our customers lampshades with designs and colour all over. We want to invite artists and designers from all over the world to be part of our company and deliver colour designs for our lamp shades.”
Lights 4 Living, a home lighting company based in the UK and specialising in home lighting of all kinds, have responded to the innovative new poster lamp shade designs from MostLikely. A spokesperson for the company said:
“Art, design and home lighting are all involved with each other, and nothing illustrates that more than the new DIY lamp shades from MostLikely. By combining this unique artwork and the designs with a practical home lighting product, anyone is able to construct their own personal lamp shade from BOICUT’s strange and beautiful illustrations.”
