[Beautiful Glow]…Light Living Pixels

The gorgeous lamps above were made in Hong Kong out of discarded advertisement banners. The designers, Kay Chan Wan Ki, Shai Chai Chen Siu Wa, & Catherine Suen Ka Hei, sewed hundreds of squares (“pixels”) of the banner material together to create irregular lamp shapes that look nondescript when turned off, but like gorgeous crystals when turned on. The result of this project was a collection of 8 beautiful lamps that were made by up and coming designers AND utilized green concepts by upcycling.

I think these are so pretty. Read more about the project here.
