The Cloud Lamp designed by Yu Jordy Fu follows on in the tradition of Chinese paper making which began in the year 201AD. For most of us, paper is used for communication whether through the written word or painting. In China, paper-cutting is a unique art form that women across the large nation have used to decorate their homes for hundreds of years.
Yu Jordy Fu, a London-based Chinese designer has evolved further the ancient art of paper decoration. Her Cloud Lamp breaks free from the two dimensional realm into the three dimensional and explores the expressive qualities that the graceful nature of paper can offer.
The Cloud Lamp is a beautifully simple and sustainable way to add intimacy and magic to domestic environment. Fu’s reputation as an excellent young designer is growing which was in a way foreseen when she had her first solo art show at age of just six years old.
