Part of a project called ‘substitutes,’ the Document Light uses paper documents which include receipts, diary pages and memos to create a lampshade. The lamp is used as a filing system, which inevitably reinterprets the idea of storage and filing space.

Instead of letting your paper files pile up in a desk drawer and forgetting about them, why not attach it to the most visible place and make some use out of your lamp?

Implications - Consumers are seeking out items that feature a greener aesthetic. Products that promote a greener lifestyle appeal to shoppers who want to protect the planet. Stats for Recycled Paper Lamps Trending: Older & Chilly
