DeGross Design & Innovation is a design studio based in London. They have a vison that products should be both sustainable and cost-effective: “During the design process we focus on efficiency. This means that products are crafted while maximising the raw material and minimising waste.”
What to do with an old bottle?
The UTREM LUX is one of the results of this vision and way of working. “UTREM LUX is a series of lamps made from reused glass bottles that had been discarded behind our studio, and wood offcuts kindly given to us by our next-door neighbours ‘W. Hanson wood merchants’.”
Each one of the designs is made individually, by hand, and has its own unique aesthetics. UTREM LUX was launched at last year’s Designersblock in Southbank centre as a part of London Design Festival in September 2012.

I say it again and again, it’s so great to see what designers come up with in the world of upcycling. And DeGross shows this with using a discarded piece of glass, the top part of a bottle! Very nice.
