Night Star Light - Red Line Arch

As you might already have guessed, I'm a fan of paper items that combine beauty with practicality... thus I was delighted when an Etsy email steered me to Jacob George's shop, Red Line Arch. Jake is a New York City architect who creates nature-inspired tables, bookshelves, and lamps. Night Star is not just a light, but an art object as well.

The design is based on Buckminsterfullerene - aka a buckyball - which is a geodesic sixty carbon molecule. (I knew that... totally kidding! Chemistry exams gave me hives.)

The museum board pentagons and triangles are laser cut and held together with stainless steel screws. Museum board is a perfect material to use for a spherical design because the paper fibers allow it to curve easily in one direction, but offer a good bit of resistance when pushed the opposite way... thus the lampshade will hold its shape quite naturally.

I bet you'd already guessed it would cast cool shadows when lit!
