Foldability, founded by Scottish designer Kyla McCallum, is a studio which uses origami and other paper folding techniques to create a variety of products and installations. Pictured here are a few pieces from the Sonobe collection, handmade lampshades made from folded paper. These shades are incredibly exact, and must take a great amount of patience and skill to make. The folds also create wonderful layers at different points in the shades, giving a wonderful variety of light quality across the objects themselves. See below for more images of the collection, and see them in the flesh in The Lighthouse, Glasgow, where the Sonobe collection will be on display later this year (opening 16 May).
