up cycled lamps from construction sites by studio usame


wall mounted lamp – galvanized steel connector

 

 

in spain, 35 million tonnes of construction waste are produced per year. material from demolitions, construction sites
and warehouses are being abandoned with no functionality – ending up in landfills. using salvaged goods, spanish design
studio usame have created ‘luce’, a collection of up-cycled lamps, manufactured from wooden scaffolding, beams and
galvanized steel pipes and connectors. in addition, reused work bags are utilized for lamp shades, making each piece
aesthetically unique.
