Just before the weekend upcycleDZINE features another piece of upcycle design lighting. A design that uses waste from a construction site. People who’ve been visiting upcycleDZINE for some time might have read a post about another design, Dockyard, made out of similar waste. Long long ago I’ve worked at a construction site for 6 months. I remember all sorts of rough materials being thrown away. And at that time I never thought that some of these materials could be used for making stylish furniture and lighting.
Barn wood gives character to modern light fixture
The upcycle design lamp you’re seeing is called Industrial Barn Wood and Rebar light fixture and is a creation by Rebarn Design. It’s a shop on Etsy founded by upcycle designer Jaimie Kartes, based in Westfield, IN | United States. Every design in his shop is handmade and made out of pure materials. Just like the one you’re seeing here that’s made out reclaimed barn wood and parts of rebar.
What I really like about this design is the fact that these materials are so honest and basic. The endproduct is a very minimalist and robust upcycle design pendant lamp. Dimensions are: 84 cm long x 39 cm high x 11,5 cm wide.

It’s always nice to see design made out of old reclaimed wood because it shows so much character. And in this design it’s combined with rebar and vintage looking light bulbs that result in a modern and at the same time pleasing piece of unique upcycle design lighting.
