Origami Ceiling Roses - Studio Snowpuppe

I spotted these pretty origami ceiling cups in an Etsy email and knew right away they had to be from Studio Snowpuppe. A fresh take on antique pendant light ceiling medallions, the color grouping will even look great as wall decor if you don't have a chandelier handy.


Nellianna van den Baard, an architect, and Kenneth Veenenbos, an industrial designer, are the creative duo behind Studio Snowpuppe, located in The Hauge, Netherlands. Kroonuppe ceiling roses are new to the product line and perfectly compliment their Moth and Chestnut diamond folded lampshades. Created from a sheet of sturdy paper, the rose simply slips over a light bulb and slides up the cord to the ceiling.


I asked if there is any need to adhere it in place. Nellianna assured me that the rose clamps itself around the cord and sits firmly against the ceiling. A clear washer is sent along to ensure the rose will not slip down the cord if the paper should lose a bit of its stiffness due to wind or humidity. There is also a small plastic cup that fits inside the rose.


Nellianna offered to send me a ceiling rose to test out and also a short video that shows the way to install one. How nice to see this engineering marvel in person and yes, there is a good amount of tension within the sturdy paper folds; it clamped snugly around a cord. The package also gave me the chance to meet Kenneth and Nellianna via the cards they sent along... they're the ones with lampshades on their heads. :)

The beauty of these shades (aside from their literal beauty) is that the folded paper brings a warm glow to the chilly light of energy-saver bulbs. Can't you picture one of these lampshades with a matching ceiling rose above it? Perfecto!

Studio Snowpuppe is on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram.

Have a lovely weekend. I'm happy to say spring has sprung here in the northeast and hope it's nice where you are too!

By the way, this is not a sponsored post... it's my opinion only, written after receiving a ceiling rose sample by mail.

Sorry, this isn't a DIY. Creating origami lights is Studio Snowpuppe's livelihood.
