Modern Pendant Lamp Made From Magazine Paper, Wonderable Hallelujah

Cool Idea: Hallelujah by Wonderable

One of my absolute favorite products that I discovered at the Ambiente design trade show, which I attended courtesy of Messe Frankfurt last month, was the Hallelujah Lamp from Netherlands-based designer Wonderable. But I don't just love it because it looks cool — and it does, doesn't it? First and foremost, the pendants are made from a Vietnamese printer's wastepaper, so it's not only inventive, but it's also eco-friendly.Secondly, a team of young artisans, mostly street children, create them in Ho Chi Minh City using the same technique used to create classic Vietnamese garlands. So while the production offers the young people a chance to learn a trade and earn a living from it, it also helps to pass down the techniques of their own culture's traditional crafts.

And lastly, since the lamp is produced from excess paper from a printer, each lamp is unique. The shades not only bear a limitless range of colors, but each has a distinct pattern based on the printed paper used to make it. I liked the stripe-like pattern of this one! Conceivably, the honeycomb-like structure could be produced in solid colors — but where's the fun in that?

Hallelujah is available in stores all over the map, from South Korea to Switzerland and beyond. Unfortunately, it hasn't made its way to the States yet, but you can order yours directly from Wonderable for about $380.
