Found Form by Enina Waelstham for Mormels design

Dutch designer Enina Waelstham of Mormels Design has created a collection of lamps made by covering objects in recycled paper.

Each of the three lamps is made by using papier-mâché to paste the recycled paper over found objects such as coffee cups.

The papier-mâché form is then cut open to allow the objects to be retrieved and returned to their original function, and the shell is sealed back up to create the lamp.

Here’s some text from Mormels:

The fresh new design studio Mormels is very proud to present ‘Found Form’ by Enina Waelstham.

Dutch native Enina Waelstham (1980) didn’t go through any of the well-known Dutch canals to get to where she is now.

As an autodidact she gained and developed her expertise in design via many different jobs in design company’s worldwide, including Amsterdam, Shanghai, New York and Munich. Now Enina has taken the exciting next step by setting up her studio Mormels design in London, UK.

The growing family of lamps; ‘Found Form’ is the first design to be presented under her own name and company. It is a clear presentation of Mormels’ and Enina Waelstham’s vision for design, for the future of our planet and our homes.

‘Found Form’ investigates reusing the wealth we already have in our world, as the shapes of the lamps come from existing objects in our everyday surroundings.

By linking these shapes and taking their combined shape via the traditional technique of papier-mâché a new fascinating object comes to life. The material used to create the lamps over these objects is recycled paper, thus creating a lightweight, eco friendly, biodegradable and unique lamp.

‘Found Form’ is an exciting and ongoing project bound to give people a new view at what is already around us in our overflowing world.
