This is one of the best uses I have seen for old lamps and slides for a while. These pieces are from artist Michael Marcovici and the slide ones in particular are really striking. What a refreshing use for old slides:

The film shade is from “Apollo 13,” a detail which make me desires it even more, but I still love the cubic brilliance of the slide light best.

Implications - In today's society, there is a large group of consumers who find it very appealing when old and unused products are transformed into something updated and beautiful. Not only do such products complement a green lifestyle, but they also satisfy the high demand amongst consumers for products that boast retro or vintage qualities and characteristics.
