Jaim Telias - wood chandelier

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.

Check out more of Telias's designs after the jump.
