Rustically glistening, this upcycled lighting hangs off your ceiling in the shape of a broom stick. Instead of straws, this design is constructed with recycled bicycle wheel spokes. The resulting effect is a polished and geometric lamp shade that looks like no other.
This design is called the Hawaii Lamp from Wheels, made by European company Transfodesign. The designers gathered old bicycle wheels from repair shops to reassemble its spokes into something new and artistic. The neat thing about this lamp is that it not only uses the bike parts, but it is completely assembled using the wheel's original shapes and holes.
The Hawaii Lamp has been recognized at several design shows for its environmentally friendly and abstractly beautiful form. It would be a great housewarming gift idea for the eco-conscious.
