The designers needed a way to light up their workspace and the perceived trash became a bright idea. The packing tape used to keep the sticks together became the inspiration behind the hanging strips that hold the light in place. The light's height can be adjusted using the hanging strips. The space on top of the fixture is perfect for quirky décor (as shown in the photo above).
Upcycled products like this make it seem easy to turn trash into design gold. What's your favorite design that used to be something else?
