Cypisek Paper Mache Lamp by Maria Fiter

One of Maria Fiter’s most iconic creations, the Cypisek Paper Mache Lamp is inspired in one of the main characters of a popular 90’s Czech cartoon called Rumcajs. ‘Cypisek,’ the son of the main character of the series, always wore a specific kind of hat that had a conical shape with a flat top. In it’s real-life adaptation, the result is an elegant ceiling lamp made from paper pulp that offers a modern and stylish design which reminds us of the industrial lamps with wide shades.

The making of the Cypisek ceiling lamp makes use of a technique known as papier maché. During the process, Maria Fiter recycles old newspapers and turns them into paper pulp. The pulp is then mixed with glue, in which the resulting mix can be molded and shaped at her will.

This lamp is colored in two different tones. The top color is always the raw grey characteristic of paper mache, yet the bottom can be personalized to your taste. The Cypisek Paper Mache lamp  has a 1m (39inch) cord that can be personalized at your will also.

So where can I put the Cypisek Paper Mache Lamp? 

The Cypisek Paper Mache Lamp is an ideal ceiling lamp for dark spaces that need a lot of light. The large radius of the shade make it an ideal lighting solution that creates a wide cast of light.

You can use a dry cloth or you can vacuum clean it with the machine set at the lowest power.

What Lightbulb should I use with the Cypisek Paper Mache Lamp?

You have to keep in mind that this is a Paper Mache lamp shade, and although it is very strong and resistant to physical force, we do recommend using only LED light bulbs as they don’t create heat and have no risk of heating, or burning the paper. Plus, it’s also a more eco-friendly choice for our planet, and a money-saver for your electricity bill. The maximum lightbulb Wattage recommended for this lamp is 20W. The lightbulb is not included.
