Look! Wine Gift Box Transforms Into Lamp

Similar to the reuse of packaging we posted just a short while ago, Spanish waste management and consulting firm, Grupo Hera, sent out these bottles of cava as gifts (I'm a teetotaler, so I had to look online to discover that cava is a Spanish variety of sparkling wine) that play double duty by offering a secondary way to get lit up by the option to reuse 70% of the packaging to create a lamp...

We'd just want to make sure recipients put the Ciclus lamp together (designed by sustainable product designer, Tatiana GuimarĂ£e), which is made of an outer wooden case and a cardboard base that holds an included mini CFL bulb, BEFORE they get their cava on, because the last thing you want is to aid an electrical accident through intoxicated mishaps. Tony Soprano was right, the waste management business seems like a profitable endevour if they're giving away lamps and bubbly!
