This repurposed lamp features simple pastel colors to liven up these old cans -- giving them a completely different function.

The 'FLEXO 001' is a lamp that was designed by 'Iliui' to repurpose old cans that would otherwise end up in the trash -- instead they're now able to light up a space. The cans would generally be used as containers for food and then discarded in a landfill, but this artist saw the basic shape and decided that they could serve a different role.

Using old cans of coffee, dog food, olives and other items -- this artist used these recycled items to create these repurposed lamps. The cans serve as the shade in a rustic lamp design. Fusing the cans with wood and leather -- these lamps make a perfect addition to any stylish desk space.
