MilkShell2: plastic milk cartons lampshade by Gilbert de Rooij – upcycleDZINE
One of the first lampshades I made using plastic milk cartons is the MilkShell. And today I’m happy to show you a new and bigger version, 48 cm. diameter, of that lampshade. Named ‘MilkShell2’ and again made out of leftovers from producing other upcycle lamshades.
After cutting up all these cartons I ended up with the top part, a middle part and the bottom. For this design, like the original MilkShell, I used the top part, but in such a way that you wouldn’t recognize the milk carton right away. And I hope I succeeded in doing so.

Shell shaped lampshade all about light and shadows

The MilkShell2 is a playful shape with a protective character because of the inward direction in which it points. The best thing of this lampshade is the nice shadow it shows on the walls. It’s always a big surprise how the design turns out but it is even a bigger surprise how the light and the shadow will turn out.

Well, stay tuned because there are still some new ideas I’ve got for making other lampshades out of plastic milk cartons. Please take a look at the other photo’s at ‘See more photos’ and visit ‘My upcycle design‘ for more upcycle design made by me.
