Maybe it’s because of my preference in the upcycle world for lighting design. Maybe it’s because lighting design is so popular with upcycle designers. Whatever the reason is, you’ll find lots of surprising and stunning upcycle lighting design. They can be simple, complicated, fun, amazing, stylish or sturdy.
Today I want to show you a design that is both amazing and stylish.

An armchair turned into a unique lamp

The design is a upcycle lamp called LINK by British designer Matthew Appleby, who lives and works in London and Berlin. He created this really beautiful and unique design out of pieces of a sliced up armchair, some tent poles, copper tubing and a lamphade made from a speaker cone.

Matthew creates objects mostly by using found objects, repairing, renovating and combining materials to make an object for a domestic interior. What I like about his work is that it shows that waste can have value by giving it a second life. The objects he creates are design pieces with a touch of art.

Matthew designed LINK for a Kreuzberg | Berlin based company called ShowRaum. They have a great collection of hand made design and you can order custom made pieces of furniture and lighting directly from their designers. ShowRaum: “Discarded materials, a green attitude and a teaspoon of madness are the main ingredients in our work. ShowRaum hand picks and blends interesting creatives and their ideas and handles thereby complete interior design projects from concept to production and final install.”
