LamP – Recycled LP Lighting by Robin Bontenbal

LamP – recycled LP lighting is a sustainable lighting collection made from recycled materials. The lampshades are made from recycled vinyl records. The vinyl records are heated and formed by hand. Each lampshade is different because each vinyl record is different! The collection consists a desk light, a walllight and ceiling lights in various sizes. Sustainability is very important to LamP.

By using old records that are otherwise thrown away, a useless object is reused for a new product. This allows the user to see that you can use a product in different ways. LamP came up with the idea because she could take over 500 old vinyl records. Otherwise they were thrown away. At first LamP didn’t know what to do with it. After much testing LamP managed to make a lampshade from a flat vinyl record and that is how the lighting collection was born. Every light pendant is made by hand, so each one would be unique.
