Das rote Paket, based in Leipzig, Germany, introduces unique designs from young architects and designers. Earlier this year they held a lighting design competition using ready-made objects and a small budget. Jump below to read more.

The task: design and build a ready-made light that works with a low energy light bulb. Sounds simple? Here are some more qualifications: it should be built with prefabricated parts and costs for all parts should not exceed 40 Euros (approximately $60.00).

The results: incredible. Submissions from all over the world brought to light (literally) the wide variety of creativity and ingenuity that can be produced, and reproduced, with a small budget. Check out images from a few of the finalists (shown in images above) as well as many more unique designs here.
