LED UPCYCLED BOTTLE CHANDELIER BY YOON BAHK

upcycled bottles chandelier, yoon bahk, design squish blog

This LED chandelier by Yoon Bahk is made from recycled wine and champagne bottles.  Rescued bottles were hand washed and polished. A unit from single bottle can be hung by itself.  Yoon Bahk believes that green design should be an idea and not a look. 

I found this great design in a book called 1000 New Eco Designs:

ECO-FRIENDLY DESIGN, NATIONAL DESIGN TRIENNIAL, 2010

eco-friendly book led lamp, green design, design squish blog

Book LED floor lamp. The lamp’s shade opens and closes like the cover of a book. As the shade opens wider, the light shines more brightly, and as it closes, it gradually dims and turns off. Made from recycled aluminum.

biodegradable coffin

Simple, non-toxic, eco-friendly biodegradable coffin!

eco-friendly stackable chairs

Eco-friendly chairs made from strawboard. (Strawboard, a formaldehyde-free material made of compressed straw- an alternative to wood particleboard or fiberboard)

invisible street light

Invisible Street Lights designed by Jongoh Lee are in the shape of tree leaves and can be wrapped around tree branches.  During the day, these leaf structures mingle in the tree’s natural leaves, harnessing and storing sunlight. At night, they provide a poetic alternative to streetlights. 

National Design Triennial is on right now at the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum, New York City.
