The Eliminator Lamp Uses Tattered Papers as Unique Lampshades

It's unlikely that you might expect to see anything resembling the Eliminator Lamp, a quirky hybrid object that marries together two very different functions for an oddly logical outcome. The winsome wooden light fixture plays the part of a paper shredder as well, and it uses the cut ribbons of pages to diffuse illumination.

Rough drafts of school work and business, old newspapers, magazines and unwanted flyers can all make perfectly capable lampshades for this Merve Kahraman home accessory. You simply guide the sheets through the cantilevered top of the document shredder table lamp and turn the lever to feed it through to produce a loose curtain of stripped printed material. The Eliminator Lamp helps you to effectively destroy private files, reduces the energy consumed by electrical scrappers, lets you choose your own unique and changing shade and provides you with light.
