Glass

Glass is collected from dumpsites and recycled to produce custom designed chandeliers. Each piece is individually tied with electrical wire off-cuts (where possible). The process of manufacturing these lights is a very effective empowerment initiative, which more than make up for the times when off-cuts are scarce and the wire needs to be bought. To process glass in this way uses less than one tenth of the energy it would take to completely re-make them – they never need be worked again.



Washing machine drums

Discarded washing machine drums and many other interesting objects can be found at any scrap yard and when re-purposed, make fantastic functional art pieces.



Bamboo

Bamboo, unlike most timber, is a self-regenerating natural resource. New shoots that appear annually ensure production after individual culms are harvested. Making these lights leaves very little carbon footprint as most of the work is done manually.



Tile and mirror off-cuts

Tile, mirror and glass off-cuts are very abundant and are usually available free of charge - mosaic is a wonderful option for these as opposed to a landfill, for both decorative residential and commercial signage applications.



Pulpit



Car and truck air filters

Car and truck air filters are recycled and made into a multipurpose standing / bedside lamp – the same light can be installed as a handing pendant light. This design won ESKOMs Energy Efficient Lighting Design Competition 2014 and is called Bright Spark.



Used fluorescent bulbs

Used fluorescent bulbs make this contemporary hanging light – the tubes diffuse the warm white CFLs (energy saver bulbs), creating a soft, warm and effective light source. The ends are protected by two car air filters and the tubes individually wrapped in a clear protective coating.



Recycled oil filters

Recycled oil filters are used to create ceiling cups for lights, especially the award winning BRIGHT SPARK design.
