Modern Alchemy: Concrete Lamps Made to Look Like Paper

Spotted (and admired): concrete pendant lamps from Germany that resemble delicately rumpled paper.

Designers Miriam Aust and Sebastian Amelung collaborated on the "Like Paper" lamps, which are made in Germany and available through Dua Shop in three different versions (two styles of pendant lighting and one table lamp).

Above: The Hangover Lamp (€265 each) extends down onto a table while the three Roof Pendants (€265 each) hang above. Roof Lamp #3 features a wider concrete shade and is €268; all from Dua Shop.

Above: The lamps are made of concrete and a soft gray PVC cable.
