Bottled Brilliance: DIY Plastic Bulbs for Hanging LED Lights

Hand-crafted takes on a whole new meaning in these creative table lamp and pendant lighting designs. Instead of an artisan working hard to make a unique light, you become the creator each time you crush a used bottle and screw it into the fixture.

The resulting ‘bulb’ then reflects and refracts light according to the way it is bent and twisted, filtered through clear or colored plastic and/or obscured by labels or markings. In short: each one is original and different from the next.

The housing is a simple aluminum frame with a fixed LED light inside, either hanging by a cord from the ceiling or attached to a table lamp stem. Not yet being manufactured, the idea was designed and developed by YaRan Chang, Hsin Chou Liao, Chung en Lee & Simon Shih.
