Textile designer Deryn Relph’s Retro Lights are made out of knitted upcycled materials and have a playful 1960s look to them. Inspired by nature, these creations are meant to “evoke a positive emotional response” and achieve that goal by using interesting color combinations and lamp shades shaped like flowers buds ready to bloom. The textiles are made out of factory surplus cotton and bamboo, giving the lamps a smooth glow once the shades are properly fitted. If you want these quirky and cool Retro Lights to win our Bright Ideas Lighting Design Competition, hurry and give them your vote before our contest ends tonight!
