David Graas’ Colorful Modular Lamps Divert Plastic from the Ocean

Most plastics can be endlessly recycled without losing their indestructibility. But instead of being reused, the majority of plastics will end up as one-time-use products, finding their end as pollutants on land or in our oceans. Save Our Soup  is Dutch designer David Graas’  colorful, speckled collection of recycled plastic  lamps that have been created with then intent of diverting plastics from the Pacific Garbage Patch, or “soup”.
Save Our Soup’s brilliant modular lights  can be arranged and rearranged into various shapes thanks to its construction using small triangules with plastic snap joinery. The lamp comes in three different sizes and is sure to brighten up any room in a funky way.
We originally spotted the lamps at Dutch Design Week  last November, and we can’t wait to see what other functional designs Graas has in store employing reclaimed plastic waste.
