NEW: paper whale lamp, origami lamp


Shipping to United States: $25.01

This Whale origami paper lamp will look great in any room. This design brings together imagination, magic and simplicity!

It is perfect to add a playful touch to a room. The contemporary, modern look fits many styles.

The strong folds play with the light.
The lamp provides even, cozy light. It is suitable for use above the dining table for everyday use or for use in your living room, bedroom or children's room.

The lampshade fits around a standard energy saving lamp or LED lamp.
We recommend an LED lamp that is better for nature because there is no mercury in LED lamps.

The dimensions of this lampshade are:
- 50 cm wide;
- 20 cm / 7.9 inches diameter.

The dimensions of the textile cord:
- 3 meters / 118 inches length
The length of the cord can be shortened without cutting the cord using the ceiling rose.

What kind of light bulb?
All lampshades are CE certified to meet the latest European safety standards.

These lampshades can only be used with an energy saving lamp or LED lamp.
You can find these in every supermarket.
If you use an energy-saving lamp of maximum 11 Watts, it is completely safe to use our lampshades. Compared to the incandescent bulbs you are probably used to, an 11 Watt energy saving bulb is the same as an old 60 Watt incandescent bulb.

The lampshades are perfect for use with energy saving lamps because the lampshades make the light warmer, more natural and cozier.
The colored paper has a beautiful color effect on the light.

Terms of delivery
All our models are supplied with a porcelain socket, a textile cord of 3 meters in length and instructions for use. They are delivered in a high quality cardboard box.

This listing is for 1 lampshade

Please see our shop policies for more information.

The lampshade is very easy to install. Simply take it out of the box and slide it over your energy saving lamp. It will sit perfectly on top of the socket.

This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

Information I Collect
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information, if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

- as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;

- when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;

- if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and

- as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

- Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.

- Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.

- Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.

- Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

- Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.

- Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.

- Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.

- Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I do to help with proper delivery?

When your order has been shipped, you will receive a tracking ID so you can check the shipping status on the internet.
It is good practice to keep an eye on the tracking info.
We will also do this for you.

If possible we would like to ask you to also provide your telephone number with your order. The mail delivery service can use your phone number in case it is not possible to deliver your order. The mail service can then make a new appointment for delivery.

In case you live in a building that has an entry code for delivery of the mail, please provide us with the entry code of your building.

If your package has not been delivered within 21 days, please contact us. In that case there is possibly a problem with the mail delivery.

Custom and personalised orders

Custom orders welcome! Please contact us and tell us your wishes.
Customizations that we can do are special colors for the cord or lampshade.

If you need a custom lamp for an interior design project, we also offer custom sizes and custom graphic designs to be printed on the lampshade.
Sometimes we even design with different materials than paper.

We generally don't offer lampshades with another folding design than the lamps in our collection, but we are always open for good ideas.

Is the light bulb socket compatible for my country?

Lampshades to Europe come complete with a porcelain E27 socket.
For customers in the US and Canada we supply a cable with a E26 light-bulb socket that is compatible with US standards and is UL listed.

Our standard E27 socket is compatible for all countries, except the United States, Canada, part of South America, part of Japan, Saudi Arabia.

If you are not sure if our socket is compatible with your country, you can choose the option 'without cord set'. This will calculate the costs for the lampshade only.

Also, we are happy to help you out if you need help in finding a nice porcelain socket that's suitable to use in your country.

Can I buy the lampshade without the cord set?

You can choose the option 'without cord set' to get the price for the lampshade without the cord set.

Do the cords have a plug at the end?

Only the Klimoppe wall fixture has a plug at the end of the cord.
For the pendant lamps, the cord needs to be hard-wired to the ceiling. Or you can fit a plug yourself.

Wholesale availability

We also supply to wholesale and interior design projects.
Please contact us if you want to use our products for wholesale or interior design projects.

The origami clocks that we sell are a popular gift for 1st anniversaries.
