Comments Off on Margherita is a beautiful lamp made from recycled pizza sauce cans

Did you know an estimated 15,000 pizza sauce cans are thrown away every day in Turin, Italy? Although that’s good news for pizza lovers, the growing amount of landfill-bound waste is bad for the environment. That’s why Italian design studio Izmade has developed a plan to collect and recycle the metal cans into Margherita , a beautiful and sustainable lamp. Each lamp features a CNC-milled plywood stand that’s bonded together by renewable soybean adhesive. You can help Izmade launch their environmentally conscious and beautiful designs by supporting their Indiegogo Campaign . + Margherita Indiegogo Campaign The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

New Jersey College Reduces Energy Costs and Bird Fatalities with CollidEscape Window Film

Comments Off on New Jersey College Reduces Energy Costs and Bird Fatalities with CollidEscape Window Film

Most of know by now that tens of millions of birds die every year from window collisions , but only recently have architects and designers begun to address this devastating issue on both residential and commercial structures.  Atlantic Cape Community College, Cape May County Campus , has implemented a simple-yet-innovative solution to reduce bird deaths, and it just happens to curb escalating cooling costs in the process: a bird-friendly film called CollidEscape  can be installed over glass, which is generally both highly reflective, and heat conducting . Glass treated with the film appears opaque to birds’ eyes, but is transparent from the inside. It also insulates the glass so it doesn’t heat up, thus reducing the need for increased air conditioning use. It’s a brilliant solution to two major issues, and can be implemented on any existing building. + American Bird Conservancy + CollidEscape The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Emi from Lil Nika is a Fun Nightlight, Wall Lamp, or Even a Hat for Imaginative Kids

It’s possible that most of us wore lampshades on our heads at some point during our childhood, but Emi the Elephant Lamp is a different creature entirely. Made of 100% recycled plastic from Japan, this origami-inspired lamp can easily be assembled by little hands (with the help of an adult, of course), and can then brighten up any room with a soft LED glow . Emi makes a great dress-up item as well as a fun friend, and who could have bad dreams with a glowing elephant on guard? The company is also currently running an Indiegogo campaign to help launch a sister-product: Imo, a hippo lamp. + Lil Nika The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Sarah Turner Creates Gorgeous Chandelier from Recycled Coca Cola Bottles

Coca Cola commissioned eco artist Sarah Turner to create lighting and a massive recycled sculpture for their Hospitality Centre at the London 2012 Olympic games . At 2 meters wide the lights make quite a statement, and they were made using 190 plastic Coca Cola bottles each. There are 5 of the large lights in total, and each is made up of rings of the plastic bottles and a globe in the middle. The globe is Sarah’s Cola 30 design, which is made from 30 Coca Cola bottles hand cut and sculpted into decorative forms. The Cola 30 was the first light Sarah made from waste plastic bottles when she first started her work over 4 years ago. The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Toronto-based Castor has come up with a radiant idea for reusing hundreds of burnt out light bulbs. The design team collected an array of working and non-working lamps and bulbs (all trashed) and fixed them into the shape of a cloud. Called ‘The Invisible Chandelier’, each lighting fixture is unique and shines with a low-energy bulb located within. + Castor Photo © Castor Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: Art , Burnt Out Lamps , Castor , green lighting , green products , recycled lamp , recycled lamps , Recycled Materials , The Invisible Chandelier

Comments Off on PulpLamps Recycle Old Newspapers into Amorphous Cocoon-Like Lamps

At first glance, designer Enrique Romero ’s PulpLamps look more like cocoon-esque sculptures than lighting fixtures. Made from 100% recycled newspapers , the lamps come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, and each one is completely unique. The oversized shades can be hung solo or grouped together to form makeshift chandeliers of varying grayscale shades.
