The Measuring Light
Thanks to the rush of eco-friendly products, there have been several very quirky lamps made out of old materials. Some you wouldn’t be caught dead hanging in your home, but you can’t help but admire the designer’s level of creativity. If you have a thing for craft rooms or measuring tape, then you’ll love this overhead light. The shade itself is made out of a whole lot of measuring tape.
These come in a couple different versions, there’s the one that shows off the centimeters and then there’s the inches one. The tape is hand coiled around a bobbin that also doubles as the lamp’s ventilation system and the structural element. This was recently featured at the Model Citizens Design Exhibition. In order to pick up one of the Brooklyn, NY made lights you’ll have to contact them to find out the pricing.
