Lampshade Made Out of Old Paint Chips

The ubiquitous paint chip; every architect and designer has thousands, the manufacturers keep bringing out sets and changing the colours, so what do you do with the old ones?

Emocja Studio from Poland joins them together with plastic rivets so that you can make them almost any shape.

I wonder if there could be a version that didn't require cutting up every rectangular chip into a more complex trapeziod; there is still a lot of waste. See a lot more pictures at Designboom.
