Hamburg, Germany-based Lockengeloet repurposes old vinyl records to make useful new objects. The products range from clocks with numbers carefully melted into the vinyl record face to lamps consisting of both black and colored vinyl records.

Footed bowls are formed from two reshaped LPs and kitchen caddies use repurposed vinyl records to become paper towel dispensers with a spice rack component. 

For the more fashionable, there is a vinyl record shoulderbag.

Implications - Lockengeloet have come up with such a brilliant concept. I am really into the whole vinyl records thing and I think that this is just a phenomenal idea. I love products that are re-purposed, especially when they capitalize on the retro revival wave. Stats for Old Vinyl Lighting Trending: Older & Average
