Poetic Odyssey Suspension Light Made from Recycled Glass Bottles by Ismael QuinteroBased on a fire hydrant lid designer Ismael Quintero found on Wall Street after 9/11, the Odyssey Suspension Light (2001) was originally realized in ceramic porcelain. After years of revisiting the light and evolving it’s language and meaning, the light was refashioned out of green glass from recycled beer bottles. Green is a very healing color and it was chosen because it ties the piece back to its original landscape. Due to the mixed glass in production, each light has a unique color. To make this a more unifying design, the Latin phrase “Nostri Lumen Est Una” adorns the fixture and is translated to mean “Our light is one.” The designer wants people to feel like they’re part of the healing process.
