Entry Description

Eurus is an origami inspired light shed illuminated by LED globe. It is made of lightweight, non-rigid material, and folded and assembled to create a semi-rigid structure. The assembling technique allows the light to be flat packaged for shipping. The main material is tear-free Washi paper, which has a three-layer structure, with eco-friendly polyester film as core and Kozo Washi on both sides. Kozo Washi is a type of renewable material that is made from the inner bark of Kozo, a type of mulberry tree. The use of renewable material, coupled with simple fabrication and assembly techniques, Eurus presents a minimal carbon footprint.
