September 2013 I came across a Dutch design collective called Indusigns who make upcycle design using oil drums and canisters. They have a very nice collection that ranges from lighting to a bbq or furniture.
Authentic upcycle design spotlight
Several designs that make use of oil drums have been shown here on upcycleDZINE, like BARREL. And today I want to show another very cool design.
It’s an upcycle design spotlight called ‘Yellow Tap‘, for the industrial fan a real asset. It is available in three colors: yellow, red and green. The lamp is adjustable so you can let it shine at the desired spot.

Indusigns: “In the spring of 2013, Indusigns was born from our passion for industrial interior design and crafts. Indusigns is not only innovative, but also environmentally conscious. All our lamps and furniture, in industrial style, are unique. We let the used oil drums mainly in the same state as we have retrieved them. How the finished product will look, depends on the journey the drum took. Some oil drums are still intact and undamaged, others have significant signs of wear and tear such as dents and rust. It gives our products character and a look we strive for, industrial and authentic.”
