The Reborn Series by Y Studio, a creative firm based in China, is a collection of lighting that repurposes vintage cameras as the light head. A unique concept, the resulting designs are intriguingly modern-looking. This is due in large part to the boom stand-style they take on. This allows a more versatile function while incorporating another photographer's tool into the overall aesthetic.
Inspired by the artisan craft and precision of such early technology, the Reborn Series by Y Studio not only celebrates nostalgia, but also the stepping stones from which modern photography stands on. As is written on the firm's website, "[T]he use of the rich cultural meaning shape the development of a new design vocabulary." Clean and simple, the light fixtures would be great in homes and offices.
