Not only are these lights by Swiss designer Anne-Cécile Rappa stylish, but they are also made of recycled material.
Titled ‘Najah’, ‘Lazara’ and ‘Ilham’, these lamps are found objects covered in knitted plastic bags.
The table lamp up-cycles a salad bowl and uses it as a lamp shade, while the standing lamp uses a trash bin for a light shade.
Implications - Though eco consciousness is becoming increasingly popular amongst consumers, style is still an important element of life. Thus, some companies are creating upcycled pieces that do not look so. There is an art to the skill of disguising upcycled products that every artist should know, as it marries two very important aspects of the purchase process: aesthetics and the urge to be good.
