by , 04/08/09

Ben Light’s namesake shines through in this brilliant lamp born from his resolve to salvage his grandfather’s old Electrolux vacuum cleaner. One of fifteen finalists in our Spring Greening Contest the project is based upon the original casing and retains the vacuum’s automatic cord return while providing an extra cool retro vibe to any interior space. The remainder of the wood is built from oak scraps from a variety of his old woodworking projects. If you’re a fan of the Vacuum light, be sure to vote for it in our contest post!

    Wow, I’ve seen it all now. I’ve seen a tree stump converted into a lamp before but never a vacuum cleaner. You have to be very creative to convert something like a vacuum cleaner into an awesome looking lamp. Thanks for sharing this post.
