Since some time I’ve come across an object used for upcycling that has not been featured on upcycleDZINE. I’m talking about rope. Not a cord or line, but those big ones where a group of yarns or strands are twisted or braided together into a larger and stronger type. And searching the web for upcycle design I’ve seen quite some interesting upcycled ropes used for creating lamps. I’m still thinking on writing a post about all those different designs. To start off I want to show you a small, simple and in my opinion very attractive lighting design.
Rope showing strength and suppleness
On Etsy, where else, I stumbled upon a wall lamp that uses an old rope in very friendly and original way. This upcycle design is created by interior and lighting designer Tassos, founder of TassoStudio and living near Thessaloniki | Greece.
The sconce, wall lamp, is made out of reclaimed wood and discarded rope. A beautiful contrast showing weathered wood and the toughness and suppleness of the rope. This structure in combination with the vintage looking Edison like lightbulb, gives this upcycle design a nostalgic and warm appearance.
