Gallery: Edward Chew Creates Stunning Geometric Lamps From Recycled Tet...

 
Chew goes on to say that “We could possibly achieve building a spherical pavilion as big as a house!”

Each spherical Tetra Pak lamp requires approximately 450 empty soft drink packets and is 260mm in diameter. The boxes were unfolded and then transformed into 108 hexagons by cutting 6 strips of 6 squares, each 130mm x 21mm, to form a triangle. The triangles are then assembled into geometric lamps that shine a new light on material reuse. Chew says “Imagine if each of us were to turn the empty boxes after each quench into a hexagon, and collectively knot them together, what possibly could we achieve?”
