R16 – The Lamp Made Of Packaging

View all 20 Photos

Not many lighting designs can claim to be as green or as convenient as R16. Designed by Amsterdam-based Waarmakers Studio, the lamp uses an ubiquitous and often discarded material as a main feature of its design. The cardboard tubing is tough yet smooth to the touch and lightweight, making it an ideal choice for packaging, but it also provides a range of creative possibilities thanks to its versatility. The studio wanted to pay homage to this often overlooked material by incorporating it in a modern lighting product. Thus, R16 was born. Its name comes from the radius of the standard cardboard tubing, which is 16 mm. Clean laser cuts transform the packaging into the perfect housing for the LED tube. Convenient and easy to install, R16 comes with all the components placed inside, and can be quickly assembled by pressing and pulling the main opening. R16 can be installed above a work desk and its height can be adjusted to suit various requirements. As a nod to the DIY and creative aspect of the design, the lamp requires the insertion of a pencil at one end for perfect balance. Energy efficient and made with zero waste, R16 is a great choice for those who love green products with an innovative and modern design. The lamp is currently available in natural and matte black at the studio’s web store. Perfect for minimalist workspaces. Images courtesy of Waarmakers Studio.
