Most of the upcycle lighting ideas I come across are unique. They all take discarded objects and turn them into a new design. But what if you would design a product that, if combined with almost any bottle, would turn it into a very nice lighting design? Take a look at “Bottle-up“.
Bottle-up is a lamp designed for bars and restaurants by Giuseppe Casuccio [designer/art director] and Valerio Palmieri [architect/designer]. The first prototype was designed during the design project for a Lounge Bar. The owner needed a lamp with plenty of character on the top of the bar.
“The inspiration is born from the thought on how to light and how to promote a product at the same time. The lamp works very easy: there is an aluminum cylinder that bears the LED and houses a bottle by screws. The cylinder cap also has a small hole that allows liquid to slowly evaporate over time. In this case we used a Campari Soda bottle, that was the best choice for the bar’s colors and style. This lamp can house any kind of glass bottle.”
Just imagine that you could make a lamp from your favorite bottle, filled up with whatever you want. Great idea by these two Italian designers.
