Corrugated ‘Scrap Lights' Are A Very Bright Idea

These ‘Scrap Lights’ from Greypants are made completely from recycled cardboard. The corrugations in the construction of the material allow for gaps in the shades where light can leak out, creating wild shadows on the walls.

I love the organic shapes of the lights, and the straw colour of the cardboard almost gives them a tropical or plantation feel. Imagine in a breeze these lights would really bring a room to life with all those dancing shadows.

Prices for the ‘Scrap Lights’ run from $135 for a 8"x5" Disc up to $325 for the Irregular 12"x10" style. Stats for Cardboard Lamps Trending: Older & Mild
