Lamps Made of Drinking Cups

Recycling is now not new to everybody; you can see many people is looking for ways on how they can help save the earth in the form of recycling things. Just like this creative lamp designed by Peter Castellucci. The lamp is made of recycled plastic drinking cups. I find the result attractive and fashionable. However, the thing that baffles me is the heat the light produced may burn out the plastic cups. It sounds dangerous for me, but if the designer has also included in his design some sort of protection for the cups from burning out, then this one is awesome.

Recycoool Inflatable Furniture Made From Bulging Car Inner Tubes

Amazingly unique and earth friendly, Israeli designer Nil Ohayon designed the furniture named Recycoool. Made from bulging car inner tubes, the Recycoool was purposely made so that the average people can now afford to have contemporary and elegant furniture at an affordable price. Inner tubes are inserted through and around the metal tube framework and will be inflated to form the desired shape. I find it elegant and fashionable. In addition, it is easy to replace it the moment it will tear out, and I guess it is also easy to maintain its appearance. I just wish that this furniture will be available worldwide.

Photo Frames Made of Recycled Aluminium Cans

Thousands of trees are felled each year. Some of them are transformed into palettes which are lost, abandoned or burned. So why not think something like this : Cans + palettes = Le Cadre “frame”

The idea of this aluminium cans photo frame is after twelve or so treks throughout the world (Yémen, Iran, Ladak, Mongolia, Sumatra, Kirghisie, Equateur…), family and friends wanted to see, and see again, some of the ‘photos that had been taken. This led quite naturally to the idea of an exhibition.

But it seemed rather incongruous to present these ‘photos from “all over the world” in standard frames. What was needed was to invent a frame compatible with the ‘photos we intended to present (from regions off the beaten track whose crafts are at the same time rudimentary and exceptionally inventive). The frames could be made by Brahim in Yemen, Asiz in Indonesia, Anatoly in Kamchatka, Djarkin in Kerghisie using materials available to everyone: planks cut at an angle of 90°, glue (which can be produced by anyone anywhere in the world), nails, and aluminium drink cans for decoration.

After a year of trials and errors, these frames are at last as good as expected. You can find the exhibition which will take place in Nancy, France in May 2008.
