Recycling and upcycling is always one of our favourite topics – creating your own new stuff out of the old stuff is a great way to protect the environment and save your money. After some interesting internet shopping trips, we have collected 20 Fantastic Recycled and Upcycled Lamps And Chandeliers Ideas. Although below projects are not for everyone, which might require various skill, there should be a project right for you. However, we do want to remind you when you want to create something using paper, be really careful so it won’t be any fire threat.
Emilia Lucht and Arne Sebrantke of German design studio We Love Eames designed an interesting lamp Mygdal Plantlamp that allow greenery to grow inside without the use of direct sunlight and water. They worked closely with glass blower to create the ideal shape for the lamp and the end result is two versions – a pendant lamp and a standing lamp. Both lamps have small plants growing inside and LED light is used to replicated sunlight. The lights are a completely self-sustaining ecosystem, where they claim the plants can grow undisturbed for years. Sounds pretty cool. However, I am not sure how the plant can live without water. Anyway, interesting idea but not quite practical for me.
Crazy hair day is a fun day when kids are encouraged to come in with the wackiest and most creative hair design that they can possibly imagine. Hair gel, hair color, all the other decorations and even toys are allowed to add to hair. It is a great day for kids and parents work together and express their imaginative wide side. The inspiration comes from everywhere, food, game, movie, everything you can think. And here are some awesome photos of crazy kids’ hair creation.
What you can do if you want to decorate the exterior house with plants but don’t want to have vine crawling everywhere? OA: Lab did something smart and unconventional when design a dwelling in Seoul, Korea. They ingeniously integrated nature into the structure’s façade – making plant pots embedded exterior wall. Generally, they use glass fiber reinforced concrete to form a series of bulbous, tear-drop shaped pocket panels. Each pocket features a wide opening—which allows the flowers to flourish—that then tapers to a triangular point. A variety of blooms can be planted in these panels, and their neutral coloring is a gorgeous contrast to natural green, pink, and purple plants.
