Using media supplies as her main muse, Veronique Lamarre creates light fixtures that are both stunning and modern in design. The various creations are made using jewel cases and compact discs as material for the shade, which breathes new life into a dying form of data management.
The work of Lamarre is both enchanting to look at and exquisite to inspect; the unexpected use of materials make her designs truly one-of-a-kind. Upcycling isn't a new concept, but it seems to be coming to a head in the art and design world where artists are repurposing everyday objects in a manner that far exceeds preconceived uses. Making a chandelier out of jewel cases as well as lamps from compact discs falls into this category of trend that we'll likely see much more of in the near future.
