Upcycle design has a big fun factor, because of the shape or the original object that’s used. To point out what I mean, take a look at the photo’s and video in this post. The stunning design is by Fethi Atakol, based in Rimini | Italy. The lamp is an upcycled radiator and is named ‘Re-Pet‘ and is very friendly and fun to look at. Who would think that an old radiator could look this cool!

Since 1999 Fethi Atakol devoted himself to re-use design. His objects have appeared in fairs and shows. He has also worked as exhibition designer and takes part in artistic laboratories and educational programs.

Radiator stimulates imagination

“When I travel by car I find myself watching every dumpster searching for items that are abandoned. It happens very often that I see old chairs, doors, windows, spare railings, which immediately stimulates my imagination. Right away I find myself mentally ‘building’ new objects from these old ones. Most of the times my work begins like that.”

Fethi Atakol works with three pillars. Re-use design , education and social responsibility: “re- use design does not arise as an alternative to the industrial system. Through the practice of educational workshops, one can spread know-how, a new power to create and change forms and functions in the spaces we live in. And at the same time re-use design can create practices of sustainability and social responsibility.”
