I was surfing the internet and found these magnificent lamps designed by Christian DuCharme. He created one for the Lafayette Espresso Bar + Market. The lamp named the “300 Cups Lamp”, was made from 300 “It’s Our Pleasure to Serve You” coffee cups, cut into slim triangles. Christian DuCharme has other 300 Cups Lamps displayed in the espresso bar in NYC. They were made from plastic coffee spoons and coffee filters. These lamps are amazing.
Christian Ducharmes designs are sure to be the center of attention in a space, however, it makes me wonder whether the materials are recycled. It would be more eco-friendly if we could reuse everyday materials such as plastic spoons and coffee filters. This would limit our wastes and create something innovative and creative. Wouldn’t that be even better?
