Who would have thought upcycled plastic bags and sawdust would create fantastic looking lamp shades? Well, Kulla Design Studio did. Shredded plastic and sawdust come together to make a lampshade that, when hit with light, displays a beautiful and unpredictable pattern.
We spotted this great idea over at Inhabitat, as they decribe the production of the lamps:
Shreds of used plastic bags with different colors and prints are fused with the wooden sawdust using heat. The pulpy mixture is pressed into an aluminum mold and baked at a high temperature, without the addition of any adhesives. The heat melts the plastic, fusing the elements together in shape of the mold. Kulla wanted to accentuate the simple two-ingredient process, therefore the shade shape is kept minimal and clean.
