The concept of this small lighting element is based on a simple idea: the light of a traditional bulb comes through several layers made of semitransparent rigid plastic sheets. The bulb on a baseplate is covered with the rigid sheets folded over it – folded around and over the bulb itself. The brilliancy of the bulb is dimmed this way. However the lamp will generate just about enough light to illuminate the table, the working environment. Like a dash of sun popping out behind a cloud… Or rather: like the sun behind a thin cloud… A folded cloud…

(I have designed the lighting element for a competition by anonymous.d, the project was shortlisted, without beeing awarded. Maybe you like it, as i do.)
