TreeHugger loves all manner of flat pack; from furniture to Christmas trees and dish racks to flower vases, there isn't much that can't be designed for easy, flat packing and svelte, smaller shipping. Add to that list the Honeycomb Lamp, a lantern-esque light made of paper “denguri“, a product of Japan's Shikoku region. The delicate design opens like a book, from about 1 inch thick into a honeycomb pattern that’s held together with small clips in the back. Once unfolded, it presents a soft-yet-stable paper lamp.
It's a bit of DIY job -- you have to add your own bulb (compact fluorescent, of course) and cord -- but it'd look pretty awesome with some molo furniture or the incredible expanding K-Bench, and when you're done with it, just toss it in the recycle bin. Pretty soon we'll have seen everything, from the home all the way down, to have a flat-pack life. For now, the Honeycomb Lamp is available at ::Charles & Marie via ::Freshome
