Upcycled plastic bottles are nothing new, even plastic bottle lighting has been done numerous times, but Matteo de Colle's take on this type of artwork is intriguingly unique. He takes the overdone eco-friendly fad and puts a creative twist on the designs.

Matteo de Colle has crafted stunning light fixtures that are barely reminiscent of the plastic bottles used to make them. By cutting, melding and spiraling plastic bottles in all shapes and sizes, Matteo de Colle has created a line of lights that would fit into any stylish, contemporary home with ease. As he puts it, "Opening a recycling bin for plastic reminds me of a soap opera: familiar characters, different combinations each day." These words are what he aims to bring to his artistic upcycled designs.
