Upcycled Lamps

These recycled lamps are a tad bit different from the recycled lamps I usually write about. No recycled plastic bottles or coffee stirrers to be found from in the lighting from Classified Moto.

They use various parts like brake rotors, shocks and transmission gears from 70’s and 80’s era Japanese motor bikes in each hand-crafted lamp.

The lamp you buy may look different since Classified Moto says they make the upcycled lamps from parts on hand (but they try to consider special requests).

Unique Kitchen Lighting

I found this kitchen on an Italian website and I was struck by the lighting for the island.

It is lit by the Achille and Pier Castiglioni Arco floor lamp. I have always loved this iconic light but I’m not sure I’d want it in the middle of my kitchen.

What do you think?  Is this an innovative idea or better as a photo prop?
