I am past due for a new post on recycled lighting. Sorry for that. These cool lights are by Christian DuCharme, a Swiss designer from Zürich. Previously a set designer and window display artist, Ducharme now works as an interior and accessories designer.
The first light is titled 300 Cups Lamp. As you might guess, it was created from 300 cups. DuCharme’s other lights are made from plastic spoons and coffee filters. I think he really loves coffee or coffee houses.
This playing card sphere is from graphic designer Nick Sayer. He’s a master at creating geodesic spheres. I especially like the one he made from bicycle reflectors. For the first lamp, 270 recycled poker cards are precisely cut with 4 slits and locked together – no glue! The Coke bottle light is also amazing when I think that it is held together without any adhesive.
