DIY Papercraft Take-Off Lamp by Fifti-Fifti

View all 22 Photos

This gorgeous suspended lamp looks like it’s made of metal, but only the frame is fashioned from steel. The intricate lampshade design is actually crafted from laser-stitched paper. The two sheets are easy to customize; simply pop out the triangles in one of the recommended patterns or a sequence of your own. Then, apply the paper to the frame with the adhesive magnets included in this fun and professional-looking DIY kit. Voila! With just a little time and planning, you get a personalized Take-Off Light, designed by the German studio Fifti-Fifti and completed by you. Once it’s finished, hang the shade from the ceiling cord and admire how the light is diffused throughout the room.
