The delicate design opens like a book into a honeycomb pattern that’s held together with small clips in the back. Once unfolded, it presents a soft-yet-stable paper lamp that has its own aura of architecture. It comes without any wiring or bulbs, so all you’ll need to do is add a bulb and a cord and you’re set.
Because of the way the lamp is built, the light also illuminates the glass beam, creating that delightful X-Files effect.
A dimmer switch would do the same thing, sure, but having two different light sources working off one another would provide some interesting room lighting. The Butterfly Light is just a concept at this time, though quite an elegant one.
The lamp looks very simple except for the tasteless, hanging anthropomorphic figure. Either the designers were fresh out of ideas or they are into black humor.
