South Korean artist Gyuhan Lee has noted an unusual collaboration with McDonald's. The artist used simple paper bags from a popular fast-food restaurant to create genuinely designer lamps.
A total of two models were created - McDonald's Paper Bag Lamp 12-1 2022 and Tokyo Edition: McDonald's Paper Bag Lamp 12-2 2022. It is not the first such experiment for Guihan Lee - earlier, he was noted by the project "The Pattern Is the Pattern", creating objects of furniture and interiors from Nike shoe boxes.
The author of the new consumer concept said the idea came to his mind while waiting for a flight at Narita International Airport. The artist's eyes came across bags in which the food was packed in McDonald's.
In his new work, Lee reinterpreted the usual shape of the American corporation's logo. Besides, the creation of the collective production and handwork were skillfully combined. The artist used the traditional Hanji technique, laying the paper on a metal frame. In this way, geometric shapes were created and integrated into authentic lamps.
