Bright idea @ ReMake
Say hi to the ”Sputnik” lamp designed by Jens Pettersson! The lamp was a entry in the design contest ReMake (organized by Stockholms Stadsmission). The shiny, sleek look is a far cry from its origin – the pendant lamp is made of the barrel of an out-of-service washing machine! The great shape of the drum – with its perforated surface and stainless steel finish – creates great hack potential…The lamp is quite the upcycled improvement from the junk yard origins…
As there is a steady flow of discarded machines, finding use of old parts is both smart and eco friendly!
