The story behind these paper lampshades
Have you heard about Snowpuppe yet? Snowpuppe is a clever snowman living on the Arctic.
He had a huge problem: during the winters on the arctic he was not able to do the things he liked because it was dark all day long.
Friends of his tried to use light bulbs to solve this problem, but their houses melted. Snowpuppe almost lost some good friends because they could not escape from their melting houses.
One day, Santa Claus visited Snowpuppe and gave him some special energy-saving lightbulbs. With these lights Snowpuppe would be able to light his house without having to be afraid of melting.
Snowpuppe tried the lights and could do all the things he wanted: reading a good book, having friends over and watching polar bears. However, he was still not quite happy. On the contrary he was actually quite depressed.
After a while he noticed that the light of his energy-saving lightbulbs were not giving the warm colorful light that he was used to get from the sun.

And that's why he decided to start experimenting with diamonds made out of paper of a lot of different colors.
He thought these would help the energy-saving lightbulbs to give more natural, warm and colorful light. After weeks of experimenting, he called 'Eureka', because he had made special paper diamonds that really made him happy and took him out of his winter depression.
Snowpuppe ended up frosting his whole house with his lampshades and soon got the cosiest home in the arctic.

However, in the end he was still not happy. All the other artic Snowpuppes also wanted his lampshades. He had to work day and night to make these.
Luckily, Nellianna and Kenneth heard about him and decided to help him out.

Look & feel
This lampshade has a cornered outside and a curved inside.
The curved inside is quite unexpected. Just like the first time you open a chestnut and see that it is very round and curved on the inside.

This lampshade is folded with utmost precision out of special FSC paper of the type Butterfly.
The strong folds and curved folds on the inside play with the light.
Designed by Kenneth and Nellianna

The lamp gives smooth, cozy light. It is very suitable for above the dining table for everyday use or for use in a bedroom or nursery.
The lampshade fits around a standard energy-saving lightbulb.
It is suitable for use as the only source of light in the room.

The dimensions of this lampshade are:
-18 cm / 7 inch height;
-28 cm / 11 inch diameter.

The dimensions of the textile cord:
- 3 meter / 118 inch length
The length of the cord can be shortened without cutting the cord by using the ceiling cup.

How to clean?
The lampshades are made of special FSC certified paper of the type Butterfly, which lasts for years and years.
They can be easily cleaned by either using a feather-duster, blowing dust off or by using a vacuum cleaner at low power.

What kind of lightbulb?
All the lampshades are CE certified in order to comply with the latest European safety standards.

These lampshades are for use with an energy-saving lightbulb or LED lightbulb only.
You can find these in any supermarket.
If you use an energy-saving lightbulb of maximum 11 Watt, then it's completely safe to use our lampshades.
Compared to the lightbulbs that you are probably used to, an energy-saving lightbulb of 11 Watt is the same as an old lightbulb of 60 Watt.

The lampshades are perfect for use with energy-saving lightbulbs because the lampshades make the light warmer, more natural and cosy.
The colored paper has a stunning coloring effect on the light.
