KaiGami | Beautifully Bent Lamp Shades

KaiGami

Beautifully Bent Lamp Shades

Guillaume Lyons British born with French and Trinidadian heritage was educated at highly acclaimed Goldsmiths College, University of London where he graduated in Design Studies, a four year degree course that provided the freedom to experiment, to think differently, and to be an individual. During this time Guillaume honed his skills, focusing his creative energy into product design. Since graduating, Guillaume has been developing a style of design he has given the name KaiGami; the art of bending flat, flexible sheet to create three-dimensional functional house-ware items.

Guillaume’s passion for design is obvious and can be seen through his current collection of designer lamp shades. The name KaiGami was inspired by the ancient art form known as origami. KG echoes origami in the idea that one can create an object from a flat piece of malleable material. That's as close to origami as KG gets, however, since KG creates objects that go beyond ornamentation, as each design created has a specific function to the end user.

Also while origami relies on a square, rectangular or triangular shape, KG does not. The "Kai" in KaiGami means cut in Japanese. To create a piece of KG sculptural design one must cut a profile, which can be either symmetrical or asymmetrical, from a piece of flat malleable material before the final process of creation begins. Once cut the profile is generally bent into shape rather than folded and this bending gives each design curves and a volume that is quite unlike origami's angular ornaments. The KG method produces exciting designs all with a similar stylistic flavour!
