This is No “Dirt” Lamp

This is the “Wash Lamp,” as designed by Alex Kovatchev. Can you guess by just peeking at the first image here what it’s made out of? That’s right! it’s the drum from a washing machine! That part, you know, where you put all the clothing in? That’s a big barrel with holes in it. And where the water goes in and out when there’s washing, now light moves to and fro in the free world! And the best part is, there’s three different lamps here, all made of recycled stuff.

Or do you like the term “up-cycled?” Here we’ve got a pendant lamp, an ottoman (my favorite,) and a wall light. These are fantastic and would be at home anywhere from the flea market to the high-end furniture store. You betcha. Excellent idea, excellent execution. Light on!

    Nice, but the idea is not new. There’s a pub in cologne called ‘Waschsalon’. It has this kind of lamps for a couple of years.

    This product is amazing, i like how is made from recycled products, how much would it be selling for?
