produced in collaboration with DUA, miriam aust and sebastian amelung of german studio aust & amelung have designed ‘like paper’, a slewed concrete lamp series that takes shape from what looks to be folded paper. both its appearance and its 

haptic form interpret the material in a new context, perceived to look malleable and easy to manipulate. following the wrinkles 
of certain patterns, the manufacturing process develops individuality through its various edges, kinks and creases, 

making each object unique.

the lighting products were presented as part of the FORM exhibition at tendence 2012 in frankfurt.

while some lamps shine downwards by dangling from the ceiling, others lay exhausted on the table, the cabinet or the floor 
and gleam diffused in strange directions. ultimately, the project intends to alter the perception of ubiquitous items by imitating
material properties, where the common sense of dealing with light and rooms become a stage for an illuminating presence.
