Here’s a product by Sarah Turner, a very talented designer I had on my blog before with Ella. This time it’s “Cola 10“. A lamp that’s handmade from 10 waste plastic Coca Cola bottles! Sarah collects the bottles locally from cafes and households then, after a good clean, she sandblasts them to make them turn from transparent to white. She then hand cuts and sculpts them into beautiful shapes.

Cola 10 just looks like an incredible flower. You wouldn’t think it was made from plastic bottles. Sarah has found a clever way to put this lamp together. She attaches each bottle sculpture to a polypropylene base and secures them with their own bottle top. Cola 10 can be made as a ceiling, table or floor lamp. Never thought a plastic bottle could look this cool after cutting it!
