In this age of digital downloads and MP3 players, the concept of single tracks being distributed on vinyl discs seems incredible – which explains why 45's are a product of yesteryear. But wait - vinyl's not dead yet! Gin Art is giving a new spin to these musical discs…
It's kind of sad to see the technology of yesteryear languishing in flea markets and auctions. So it's always nice to see new, inventive uses for old stuff. Or, as designer Orlando Dominguez says with his 45 Lamps, "putting a new spin on sustainability".
Dominguez's lamps are made with reclaimed 45 Records, colored plexiglass, and painted wood ring spacers. The lamps are topped off with either a black or white paper shade and a wood finial. The 45 Lamps are available by special order.
