UK-based Green Spirit Creations is the latest team to try its hand at paper-based lighting solutions. Seeking out discarded materials from local shop-owners, they create lamps from 100 percent recycled materials (bulbs, cables and switches excluded). The team is currently raising funds on Kickstarter to up-scale production of its hand-crafted products. The Cover Lamp is available at a pledge level of £29 (US$47), and a £79 ($130) pledge will put you in line for a Golden Cube. The team plans to begin shipping in May, 2014 if everything goes to plan.
