The designer himself makes handmade, creative, and unique lighting fixtures. The paper lamp shades feature a specially designed paper material that is the product of recycling plastic bottles. The lights with attractive paper lamp shades by Issey Miyake are made of a recycled plastic material which is stronger and more practical than paper.

The lampshades feature the texture of paper and look like traditional lighting fixtures. The designer bent new fabric at specific points creating these fantastic lighting fixtures. To give the unique lighting fixtures the desired shapes, Issey Miyake stretched and twisted lampshades, giving them character and designer look.
