What do these upcycle designs have in common: the mbar Clock by jankodesign and KOZO by KOZO Lamp? Well they look great of course, but both these designs make use of iron piping. And last week I came across a company that also makes upcycle design lighting with use of iron piping. The company is called Peared Creation and they have quite a big collection of bottle lamps. On Etsy they have a shop called ‘New Wine Old Bottles‘.
Vintage bottles shine like never before
These lamps are constructed from industrial style black iron piping. The vintage bottle is firmly secured by custom rubber gaskets that grasp the bottle without causing damage. A low wattage bulb is used to illuminate the vintage amber bottle producing a warm ambient light. A rotating faucet handle serves as a switch to turn the light on and off! Power is supplied by a retro style cloth covered lamp cord and plug, a throwback to the pre-prohibition era.
Peared Creation: “We provide a one of a kind lighting solution by flipping the idea of a traditional bottle lamp on it’s head. Incandescent bulbs are custom fit into vintage glass allowing us to create unique light bulbs that literally shine a light on american history. Bottles are firmly attached to black iron via industrial style couplings that unscrew for easy bulb replacement.”
What is so nice about these designs is the fact they focus on a part of history by using these incredible looking vintage bottles. “We truly believe that we have an opportunity to bring the past to light. This is why we scour the area for bottles that are embossed with local brands and familiar locations. To take the concept a step further, each lamp is adorned with an informational tag that provides a brief history and a web link that users can follow for more in depth history and multimedia.”
