It is not the side of cardboard we are used to seeing – that thin layer of reinforcement visible along its edges, which has a different pattern from virtually any angle.

That unique and shifting quality is most apparent when you cut curves into the material, and particularly if you then cast light through the resulting sides.

That is the aesthetic idea behind these so-called Scraplights by Graypants, laser-sliced then glued together by hand using non-toxic biodegradable adhesives. The result is at least as strong as conventional paper lanterns, and far more variegated in the interplayof light and shadow.
