Gallery: Gorgeous Lamps Fashioned from Discarded Kitchenware

 

Gilles Eichenbaum has made an art out of recycling old kitchenware into incredible lighting. Giles is a true craftsman who repurposes everything from colanders to kettles to broken toasters to create illuminating masterpieces. His work originally manifested itself as a hobby he picked up while traveling the world, but it wasn’t until he began selling the pieces at local flea markets, where they were met with a fervent reception, did he know he was doing something really special. Today the artist works from a small studio in Paris, continuing to fashion remarkable lamps from forgotten objects.
