5 Litre Lamp

In 2020, we designed these lamps as a response to plastic waste and out of an interest in low-cost lighting. They are made from re-purposed five litre polyethylene handled and screw top containers adapted as a light fitting. The opaque plastic and low watt LED bulbs set inside the container create a soft reading light or floor lamp. The lights were made as a series and sold on-line through a social media site. We produced 100 lamps and boxed and sold them with original artwork packaging across the world. The scale, form and quality takes inspiration from Akari paper lights designed by Isamu Noguchi 1968
