Agi Miagi’s Cardboard Lighting

Modern Decor

Cardboard is so cheap, so plentiful that it’s always a delight when someone is able to use it as a material to create home goods that are awesome and worth setting up in the modern home. Agi Miagi had already become known for her lighting creations that were geometric and repetitive, so it comes as no surprise that she has begun to dabble in cardboard. And lucky for you they will be affordable and customizable.

“Beginning with a single carefully designed profile, this outline becomes the primary element whose repeated array defines the final form of The Cardboard Family pendants. Individually assembled by hand, all lamps in The Cardboard Family are made from laser-cut recycled cardboard shapes inserted into laser-cut birch disks.” Sold through RAD Furniture.

    First reaction – meh. Second reaction – a hundred bucks for cardboard?

      Fair enough! Though I imagine you’re paying for the design perhaps?!

    These are gorgeous! What a fantastic design using an everyday utilitarian material. This looks like the future to me, and it’s a great bargain for something of this quality.
