Innovation in packaging is great, especially when less resources can be used. Waarmakers, a Dutch design firm, has a lamp that takes that to a whole new level. Their R16 LED task lamp arrives at your door in a cardboard tube. Ingeniously, the tube is the lamp structure itself, with all the necessary pieces packaged inside. With a small amount of assembly, the slim tube lamp sets up quickly, and provides bright yet dimmable light for offices, homes, and buildings.
Cardboard has a warm, soft appearance, and gives the R16 lamp an inviting, casual look.
