Two architects, Ana Morgado and Carmo Caldeira, are responsible for the development of the Orikomi products. They use the geometry of origami as inspiration, blending the paper folding art with lighting and focusing on its environmental concern.
Orikomi lampshades have a positive ecological impact due to the fact that they are handmade, have low energy consumption (promoting the use of energy-saving light bulbs) and at the end of their life cycle are completely recyclable. These products make a statement as an alternative lighting solution with low impact on the environment but with a high impact aesthetically.
The brand follows the principle that design should be economical and affordable, being paper a material that fulfils these requirements, but also, perfectionist and ambitious, especially considering the importance of lighting to guarantee spatial interior quality.
Despite of its complex construction it is extremely easy to hang and suitable to light up a variety of spaces at home.
It is an extremely versatile product, available in several models and colours, allowing innumerable possible conjugations.
At the online shop, besides the big range of plain pastel colours, you can find unique patterns that are the result of partnerships between Orikomi and other designers, which diversify the collection. Orikomi also has 3 available sizes of lampshades to match all type of rooms and needs.
