We've been on the hunt for unique items to turn into large pendant shades such as the one above. We've thought about everything from fishing baskets to coffee filters, but never did we think about soda pop tabs! This creative reuse of an everyday item is not only clever, but very well executed. What do you think about the look?

This lighting idea was presented in Inhabitat's Spring Greening creative reuse contest and we just adore the look. It was submitted by Mauricio Affonso and although we're 100% positive we don't have the patience to create such a thing, we're glad he did!

Mauricio is the Creative Lead at Umbra and we hope that nothing but awesome designs keep on coming! This one is a great reminder that awesome design from repurposed objects doesn't have to be expensive, it just has to be well executed!
