Matthias Ries has created the Elger North Light to discuss the vulnerability of preservation.

The Elger North Light is made using an ice pick, which adds a tough look to the design. With black handle and lamp shade, the Elger North Light lamp hopes people will see it and begin to discuss the north. Take a look at the unconventional design by Matthias Ries that turns ice picks to tough lamps.

Implications - I don't believe that these lamps are actually intended for purchase, but they instead aim to make a point about the current state of the environment. Enlighten your perspective on the environment with this innovative light.
