Moving Origami Bird Lamps by Umut Yamac

by ChinaBambi

It’s pretty hard to surprise someone with a lampshade these days, but London-based architect and designer Umut Yamac managed to pull it off with this intricate origami bird light.

The installation you’ll see below is called the Perch Light Family. It’s a continuation of designer’s project from 2014 when he made 20 of these birds. Now he has put them in this chandelier-like installation for Moori that launched at Salone del Mobile in Milan.

Besides spelling C-L-A-S-S-Y in capital letters, these birds also do a neat trick – they swing in the wind. And thanks to some clever engineering it’s achieved with no disruptions to the light.
