If you like copper and are into upcycling, well upcycleDZINE is certainly the place to be. This material is very attractive and is shown several times on this blog and resulted in a post with 11 upcycle designs using copper. This material has a stylish and warm industrial look and feel. Especially old copper has character with its scratches and marks.
Boiler turned into stylish lighting
upcycleDZINE has shown several times that upcycle design made entirely out of one upcycled material has something unique. There are numerous fantastic design pieces that join a few materials and there are objects with only one of them being upcycled. But to me a design piece made out of one old object or material is upcycling at its best.
That also applies to today’s featured design. A stylish minimalist pendant lamp called Copper Moon. It’s created by Dutch upcycle design company Indusigns, based in Amsterdam. You can find a few other designs regarding Indusigns in this post.
The pendant lamp in this post is made out of the middle part of an old copper boiler vessel. The lamp is therefore open both at the top and bottom and the light shines on both sides. It’s a thin circle. Because these boilers have been in use for decades, the copper has been weathered in a beautiful way. It gives Copper Moon an authentic look.
Indusigns was founded in Groningen by two brothers in the spring of 2013. Nowadays they are based in Amsterdam. Gijs Bodt, studied sociology/criminology and Chiel Bodt, studied architectural engineering, started the company out of their passion for industrial interior design and crafts. Gijs takes care of marketing & sales and Chiel is the designer.
