BRC Designs has a knack for creating furniture from recycled materials – and the studio’s latest project is a lamp made almost entirely from repurposed piano keys! The Wingin’ It Floor Lamp is made from an assortment of wood pieces salvaged from a dusty piano keyboard. The lamp is held together using nuts and bolts, and it lights up with 15 LED bulbs that consume less energy than a single 70 watt incandescent.

BRC Designs‘ one-off Wingin’ It Floor Lamp stands five and a half feet tall. It was handmade in South Carolina, and it’s part of a larger Wingin’ It Collection that includes a bed, a table and a side table. The lamp expands upon BRC’s equally cool Korobeiniki Chair and Hammer Chair, which are constructed from piano keys and hammers.
