This paperlamp is a DIY papercraft kit, including a pre-cut paper model and a base with an E14 light bulb socket, an electrical cord with switch and a europlug CEE7 (type C). Other plug options include UK plugs (type G) and EU to US plug adapters (type A). Also included is an assembly guide and an extra practice model.
The paperlamps are made with high quality 160g paper presenting good resistance and durability. A variety of colours is available, so take a look at our colour palette at the end of the slideshow. Please note that you may see the small assembly numbers when the paperlamp is lit, as we mostly use bright coloured paper.
Product language: English only.

Note: Only use LED light bulbs with an E14 fitting. This is a European standard that might not be available in your country (e.g. US, Canada and Japan).

The kit arrived promptly! It took me a while to build it and it definitely require some patience... But it is totally worth it, all those details which make it difficult they at the same time guarantee this great shape at the end! Love it!

Took a bit of time and patience, but I really enjoyed piecing this together. The instructions were clear and the way it all came together at the end was super satisfying! It now stands proudly penguin-like in the corner of my living room, and everyone who visits thinks it's excellent. Thanks!

Everything is perfect, thank you! Fast delivery and the diy kit seems to be of high quality! This was a present and the birthdaykid hasn't build the lamp yet but she loved the idea! Very curious how it will look in the end :) Thank you!

Looks nice but I did not expect such a puzzle to build it. Like 300 pieces!! 😩 Therefore, I find it veeeery expensive for pieces of paper. I would not recommend unless you have a strong passion for origamis and a few days to spend to make It.

We also provide support whenever people struggle assembling the models, so just get in touch with us. It is very clear that this is a DIY papercraft kit that you will have to assemble yourself. Please note that all our products are identified with a difficulty level and the Emperor Penguin is our most complex model, so far. It consists of 42 pieces that result in a detailed model of considerable size and requires some modelling skill.
