Recycled Flatware Lighting and Other Shades of Invention

Armed with discarded knives, forks, but mostly spoons, a soldering iron, and a wicked sense of design, Canadian artist Francois Legault has created a line of fashion lamps dubbed, Kitchen Collection. Some of the work gives the impression of being woven, some seems to have bloomed in place. The repetition of shape, size, and shine are delightful. Legault’s ability to look beyond the material and create a collection that includes pieces that range from flowing organic to Star Trek Borg cube makes his work extra-special.

Maybe it’s time to break out the soldering iron and go flatware hunting. Stats for Artsy Cutlery Cubes Trending: Older & Mild
