In order to allow the lamp to "breathe", I want to design a lampshade that gives the lamp the form factor that allows for this functionality. For the fabrication part of the project, I plan on exploring different fabrics and techniques that make the lampshade visually and physically feel lightweight, stretchy, and "breathable". My current idea is to explore origami textile that can helpfully give the lampshade some structure but also allows it to expand and transform, mimicking the motion of inflation and deflation.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
