Very cool, not very durable

This lamp looks really cool and red is a fun color. It doesnt provide enough light to read by or anything but is great to add enough light for an evening gathering or whatnot.
In the two years Ive owned this, the paper has buckled a certain amount and the screws that hold the legs on have gotten extremely loose (I can tighten them but it doesnt last). As a result, the lamp looks fairly tired and is very rickety if touched.
IN FAIRNESS, our Roomba knocks it over fairly frequently, so you COULD SAY its my own fault and it is a very cool lamp that I would recommend ... just with some minor caveats.

This product is not really a lamp. It's more art than anything and the construction is interesting but flimsy. Assembly required two people and much patience. The base is a wirey stand type that needs to be hidden.

With the necessary monies in the bank to sustain living expenses for 6 months, Roland Simmons left his job as an industrial designer in the San Francisco Bay Area. With the drive to succeed and the willingness to fail, Roland Simmons set out to become one of today's most innovative and respectable designers.
Within a vacant, neighboring apartment in his complex, Roland Simmons began to discover the possibilities of constructing contemporary art and lighting out of single faced corrugated parchment. One of his early designs was sought for and distributed by the respectable George Kovacs. The piece was named the "Mummy Lamp".
Since 1976, Roland Simmons has been designing and constructing contemporary lighting. His innovative designs have received numerous awards and recognition around the globe. Now, based in Cowley, Wyoming, among the towering mountains of Yellowstone National Park, Roland Simmons continues to design and hand cut every piece that leaves the factory. The company, Interfold, Inc., is family owned and operated by his son Todd Simmons.
Today, these pieces are known as the Roland Simmons Lumalights. They are found all over the world. Each Lumalight comes with Roland's personal signature guarantee of authenticity and quality. Where there is Light, there can be no darkness. We invite you to enjoy one of our creations in your home.
