Jaime Telias will be showing this folded wood veneer pendant lamp at Milan Design Week 2011.
The Ale Lamp, made out of wood, reminds me of an origami tessellation or a satellite dish unfolding in space. Although a paper replication with be flimsier than a wood form, the piece would be easy to replicate by folding and pasting repeating origami forms. A sewing machine - sans thread - could be used to create the perforated spaces allowing the light to seep through.
