Next time you see a wooden crate, don't toss it, send it over to Sergio Mendoza and get a new light out of it.

Sergio Mendoza takes used fruit and vegetable crates and transforms them into lighting fixtures called the SMP Lamps. What's interesting about the lights is their rustic appeal that gives a back story to where and how the lamp was formed. With an eco attitude and a designer's eye, Sergio Mendoza's creation will satisfy both environmentalists and decor enthusiasts.
