Inflatable Animal Lamps made from Tyvek by Shira Keret
I asked Shira about why she chose Tyvek and she was kind enough to explain a little about her designs. In her email, Shira says that she was introduced to Tyvek a few years ago and loves its durability. “I love the fact that it looks like paper, but at the same time cannot be torn or affected by water. I wanted the delicate look of paper and its lightness, but needed a material that will still be very durable. I also like the depth of the fibers that you see when the lamp is lit.”
I’ll bet you’d like one! We would too! Actually, we’d like the entire set! Shira ships the lamps internationally, and they can be purchased through her shop at Vespo.
Four'n'Five design group based in Jaffa port, Tel Aviv.
