It's time to revisit Gilles Eichenbaum who first made an appearance back in 2009. Eichenbaum has continued his craft and art of transforming vintage junk into steampunk lighting fixtures.

Eichenbaum toiled in the trenches of the flea markets for years before finding an audience and admirers of his work. His "messing" led him to create the light fixtures that have become his mainstay. His art is progressing as he is creating more complex and pleasing vintage lighting designs from cast off appliances.

Gilles Eichenbaum's creations are the inspiration of living the life of an Indiana Jones. His family wandered the world where he was exposed to all kinds of adaptations of the common to extend their life. He walked neighborhoods scrounging for parts and pieces that could be transformed.

The result of Gilles Eichenbaum's life is a collection of unique vintage steampunk upcycled lighting fixtures.
