One of the things I am most looking forward to at BKLYN Designs is Nicholas Furrow’s gorgeous collection of lamps made from recycled objects. The Red-Light District Lamps, shown above, are made from vintage 1970’s glass lampshades, stacked and glued to form a rigid column. I love the colorful pop aesthetic of these lamps, as well as the thoughtful re-use of vintage objects. In addition to all that, these lamps use highly efficient LEDs, consuming only 1-5 watts per day. In fact, I can’t find anything to critique about these lamps – they are perfect in every way!
