Following the material reuse thread, designers John Greg Ball, Shoko Cesar, and Darryl Barton have teamed up to create a lamp made of trash. Layering disposable plastic egg cartons, they produced an ambient light source that projects illumination in multiple directions by reflecting it off of the contours of the egg cups. The end result, of course, is anything but trashy.

Last year, we talked about Greg Ball’s Otto Chair, a puzzle-like chair and ottoman-in-one. A jack of many [interrelated] trades, Ball is also a contributing editor at Mocoloco and runs several different collaborative ventures in addition to his own studio. The Cholesterol Lamp was shown at this year’s Thaw 2006 – an art and design exhibition in Edmonton.
