The act of upcycling has become a somewhat in vogue design aesthetic, which the 'Palitios' recycled lamp looks to help accelerate. Designed by Sergio Mendoza, the 'Palitios' lamp -- which translates to "little sticks" -- features a lampshade that's made using recycled fruit crates for a somewhat edgy aesthetic.

The 'Palitios' lamp features a steel wire base that comes in four color options including black, white, turquoise and coral, as well as two size options including small and medium.

The rugged, industrial design of the recycled lamp gives it a high-fashion feeling that makes it an exceptional option for those looking for fashionable yet unexpected decor pieces.

The 'Palitios' lamp retails for €133.10 and identifies how designers and brands are responding to consumer demands for products that are stylish yet not as wasteful.
