The genius of PET lamp


Posted by Jane Tobitt

What a wonderful idea these lampshades are. At first glance they look like simple, elegant, crafted products, a closer look and you recognise the shape of a fizzy drinks bottle. Each one is hand woven from strips of discarded plastic bottles, these durable lamps combine one of the planet's most industrial products with the ingrained tradition of weaving which is found in every culture. No surprise then that they were nominated for the Design Museum Awards this year, genius.
