Portfolio > Dawn hanging lamp
materials: scrap miniblinds, metal, pendant light fixture
dimensions: 7" diameter x 12" tall
description: Dawn is an environmentally conscious lamp. She not only references nature in her sunny shape and color, she is also made from recycled miniblinds. The idea came from thinking about discarded miniblinds and if reincarnated, what their next life would resemble. In their first life they were used to block out natural light and could expand and collapse. Here, in their new life, they selectively block out and let in artificial light.
design note: Dawn can be disassembled and packaged flat so the consumer can easily carry her to a new home.
