Pet Lamp

Alvaro Catalan de Ocon

PET Lamp is a project that mixes the reuse of PET plastic bottles with selected traditional weaving techniques from different corners of the world in order to create unique handmade lampshades. A growing quantity of plastic waste is invading every corner of the planet. In many places there arenít adequate resources for the collection and recycling of this waste and in tropical zones this problem is accentuated in a very particular way. The tropical rains wash the PET plastic bottles into the rivers which in turn wash them out to the sea. Once there, the bottles float on the ocean currents. Despite the size of this problem no country has taken responsibility yet.
