- Creation date
From the beginning of her design career, Margje Teeuwen has been fascinated by the beauty of shapes that originate by crumbling paper. This resulted in a collection of lights 5 years ago. Her encounter with designer Erwin Zwiers brought new dimension to her source of inspiration. Always experimenting with new materials, he came across a multifunctional non-woven plastic, which was ideal for lighting. Independent of one another, they were working on similar light-objects and decided to join forces. The result of their collaboration is unique indeed - a lamp in the shape of a crumbled piece of paper, made of biodegradable non-woven material. Each lamp is pre-shaped by Margje and Erwin, but the unique features of the material allow the lamp to be reshaped over and over again, by the new owner. It enables anyone to tailor the shape of Proplamp's designs to their heart’s desire.
