Old lamps are literally given new light as part of the Mischer'Traxler Relumine project. Made up of pairs of recycled desk lights, these revamped illuminators are outfitted with updated wiring and brand-new 21-28W T5 fluorescent tubes.

As poetic pieces of industrial design, these Mischer'Traxler Relumine lamps incredibly use less energy than each would have on its own. Part of the Gallery Klaus Engelhorn bulb-fiction show, this collection of cooperative lights unites art and function between two lamp shades.
