Posters are ubiquitous wall ornaments. We buy them, pin them up and take them down just as fast as we go through clean underwear. But what if we could approach the lighting in our house with the same ease? That was essentially the idea behind “Poster,” a wall lamp made from a single sheet of paper.
Created by the designer duo Naoki Ono and Yuki Yamamoto of YOY, Poster is a series of wall lamps in the form of A2-sized paper. It comes flat, like paper normally does, but the cuts and incisions allow it to take form as you use tacks or tape to adhere it to the wall.
If you’ll recall, YOY enjoys turning plain household items into delightful, magical objects. One of my favorite objects was the canvas that turns into a chair. Their latest work is Poster and it’s debuting right now at Ambiente, a trade fair for the consumer-goods sector.
