Origami Lighting for a Good Cause

View all 13 Photos

Orikomi is series of tea lights and handmade origami lamp shades by Blaanc. Crafted from high quality paper, the delicate shades are particularly eye-catching. Each piece plays with color and shape, and the overall effect is reminiscent of a dancer’s bright skirt. The design promises to soften any room with pastel colors. Moreover, the product sales benefit Adobe for Women, a nonprofit that funds sustainable housing projects and teaches Mexican women how to build their own homes.
