Pendant lights look beautiful hanging over your kitchen countertops, in your bathroom or even in your bedroom. They can be of different shapes and sizes and offer you the freedom to experiment with their form and come up with something refreshing, new and creative. We look at some of the pendant lights that been created from recyclable material.
POP Pendant Light by Mauricio Affonso
Opening pull-tabs of your cold drink cans is not always a pleasure, but Maurico Affonso finds in them a unique design that can be utilized to assemble a sphere of pendant light, which he accurately calls as POP pendant light. POP pendant light is an example of great craftsmanship and brings to use one of the most neglected and discarded artefacts, a pull-tab of a cold drink can.
Float pendant by Benjamin Hubert
This floating pendant is collaboration between Benjamin Hubert and Scandinavian lighting manufacturer & Tradition. The Floating pendant doesn’t undermines the importance of wine corks and turns them into new cork blocks that can be used to create a warm glow accentuated by the cork. The making of these pendants takes the skill of a porter and a heart of eco lover.
Lotus plastic pendants by Bao Khang Luu
This beautiful pendant tries to mock the patterns seen in nature, especially in plants. It uses six pack rings that are hand woven to form strands. The rings are supported by crimps from a soda can and are lit by a LED, which means they cost less and last longer.
Pendant lights by Willem Heeffer
In case you’re a proud owner of Heinz Beanz or Campbell’s tomato soup cans, you too can utilize them as pendant lights just like Willem Heeffer. The assembly with the ceiling rose made of tuna can comes at a price of 90 Euros and boards a 40 watts bulb. We would rather recommend an LED to make it more viable.
ORIGIN by Greg Parsell
ORIGIN looks inspired by the helical DNA structure that determines who we are and gives us our traits. It is made from wood and recycled Corian. The design comes from Gregg Parsell, a student in Nottingham Trent University, whose creations were put up on display at New Designers exhibition in London. The pendant combines thermoformed Glacier White Corian with hardwood American Black walnut, both of which can be later recycled separately.
