The New York-based industrial designer and RISD graduate, Louie Rigano is well on his way to taking over the design world. Not only does he create well designed and aesthetically pleasing things, he also puts a lot of thought behind his work and concepts.

The Fan Lamp was inspired by a traditional Japanese folding fan and made of bamboo and washi paper. Rigano’s design uses the same assembly and materials as the traditional fan, but by simply bending the bamboo, a new idea is formed. The washi paper used is both durable and practical and it diffuses light beautifully.
