At the BKLYN Designs show this year, designers Levent & Romme added a technological twist to their traditional techniques of craftsmanship by using lasers to cut out these illustrations on watercolor-paper lanterns.
Hand drawn using paper and a pen first, the designs were then carved out of a single, thick piece of watercolor paper, and rolled to create a floor-standing lampshade. Tabbed designs were then carved to keep the tube's shape without other sources of adhesives or fasteners. Whether or not these lamps are fire resistant is unknown, but admittedly, seeing one of these go up in flames would also look pretty cool. [Levent & Romme via Inhabitat]
