From Designer’s Excess to DIY Shade

Designers are constantly creating or making improvements on designs in order to help reduce others’ eco-footprints, but what happens when a designer studies their own usage and excess? The Funoos lamp by designer Roohollah Merrikhpour is one result of a designer looking inward. The designer stripped 6 plastic covers and slide binders from research booklets full of old projects, and then applied the pieces to self-locking straps to create an easy to make, mix-n-match, DIY lamp shade.

Just be sure to use energy saving “cold” lights so the thermoplastic material doesn’t melt on you!
