Pieter Bostoen's 0.5L Lamp Features an Upcycled Shade and Eco-Friendly Bulb

Minimalist design and eco-friendly attitudes collide in the 0.5L Lamp. The 0.5L Lamp was designed by Pieter Bostoen using only a half-liter can, 9W light bulb, and red power cord. The design is simple and functional, providing a soft, eye-pleasing light.

In the world of design today, less is often more--less in terms of materials used and power consumption. I could easily see the 0.5L Lamp appealing to the masses with its upcycled shade and energy-efficient light bulb. Its bulky power cord could be a slight deterrent to its success, but I think that most consumers would willingly look past that.

The popularity of eco-friendly products means that in the next few years you should expect to see designs like the 0.5L Lamp become the norm instead of the exception.
