Combining the elegance of traditional paper lanterns with the convenience of Bluetooth technology is the new Orilamp, a striking battery-powered mood light designed in Toronto. As the name indicates, it’s inspired by origami and is foldable and shapeable, reminding us of an accordion or a slinky toy. Users can adjust brightness, set a timer and monitor battery life via the app, but physically opening and closing the lamp itself also turns it on and off. When not in use, the lamp folds into a compact square that could be mistaken for a thick coaster, while the wood finishes appeal with a natural look.
Super early-bird backers can pre-order an Orilamp for $79 via their Indiegogo campaign, with expected shipping by June 2016. There also the option of purchasing a magnetic strap (an additional $10) to hang the lamp vertically.
