Just in time for the Milan Furniture Fair [2], Designtree [1]‘s Tim Wigmore has unveiled a multifunctional lamp constructed from recycled shot-blasted aluminum and vibrant plastic panel scraps. Dubbed the Ledge, this clever piece is a calculated collection of colors and angles that sheds light on the importance of reducing our waste and repurposing materials.

Measuring 464 mm x 538 mm x 235 mm, the lamp [3]can be affixed to the wall, hung as a pendant, set as a shelf/light box, and much more. The flexible design can be adapted to any user’s needs, and encourages experimentation. Wellington, New Zealand-based Designtree [4] focuses on creating gorgeous furnishings that help people reconnect with their possessions and take pride in what the own, in turn discouraging conspicuous consumption.
