The lamps of the like paper by aust amelung series are an image of what we expect to be a paper-folded lampshade. Although the manufacturing folows certain paper paterns, the completed shades develop individuality through own edges, kinks and creases. Through this each object is unique. The lamp series like paper results and exists through distortion. While some lamps shine downwards by dangling from the ceiling, others lay exhausted on the table, the cabinet or the floor and gleam diffused in strange directions. Again others remain as table lamps without referring to any constructive support. ‘like paper‘ is not only placed in a room to illuminate it, but to stage it.
