Innovation at its best, especially when the environment is considered. Swedish designers, Apokalyps Labotek based in Malmo, simply re-purposed an old lamp shade using a salt solution and a bucket.

These lamps were made by means of chemistry.   The designers grew the crystal lamp from a harmless type of mineral salt that is produced as a by-product of a local chemical industry.  With the use of an old shade and a bucket, the material is crystalized to create the shape.   This dazzling light fixture reflects similar glamour found in a glass chandelier.   End result is a lamp made almost entirely out of salt and takes next to no energy or labor to manufacture.

The underlying success of this crystal lamp’s saline shape addresses a serious social and environmental issue in China. Studies have shown a common form of lung disease, silicosis, is caused by poor working conditions (lack of protective equipment) in glass factories.  The average life expectancy of a Chinese stonecutter is 35 years, this experimental lamp truly takes air and raises the issue on the real cost of things we purchase.

PS. if you decide to take a like, unplug first! 🙂
