Writing this blog on upcycleDZINE is one big adventure. I’m always searching for that great discovery. Sometimes I get a link to a nice piece of upcycle design in my mailbox. But most of the time I’m surfing the web. And some websites I visit more frequently than others because they have so much amazing upcycle design.
One of them is by an upcycle design company called gabarage, based in Vienna | Austria. Maybe you remember long_ton and de-escalator, also by gabarage and both beautiful examples of upcycling.
Enjoy a traffic light in your home
And today I’m showing another piece of upcycle design by gabarage called ‘delight‘. It’s quite an elementary lamp design in the way it uses old traffic light lenses. By connecting the lenses to each other, a sphere shaped pendant lamp is created. Nice about this design are the very recognizable colors and arrows on some lenses. Many people don’t like it when they have to stop or wait at a traffic light. And now this object is used to create a very friendly lamp that people can enjoy in their home.
The company gabarage stands for innovative upcycling: waste materials from industrial and commercial operation are considered as valuable output materials for a creative design process. The gabarage creative team developed in cooperation with designers, environmentally sustainable design pieces and everyday objects for individuals and companies.
