A great sustainable feature that will bring a sparkle to any room, these N+ew Lights by Rodrigo Alonso have been created with a rotomolding technique employing e-waste. The Chilean designer gets his raw materials from local recycling company, Recycla, who donates the e-waste to him free of charge. A modern design with just the right bit of kitsch, they are yet another exciting sustainable product coming out of Latin America.

If you’ve ever wondered where old, obsolete electronics end up, you can breathe a slight sigh of relief knowing that at least some of it actually gets recycled into brilliant, new products like these speckled lights. Dubbed N+ew Lights — which stands for ‘No More Electronic Waste’ — in addition to being made from recycled e-waste, they were made using a recycled iron mold and even boast a recycled smelted aluminum base.
