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!

Designer Alex Kovatchev also thought of the barrel lamp hack! Here are some photos of his pieces which was found via www.inhabitat.com
