New York designer Kellam Clark‘s magical Starlight lamp is a “shining” example of long-lasting, sustainable design with its combination of LED lights and recycled metal coins that cast varying shadows as you walk by. The bold energy efficient chandelier was born out of Clark’s desire to keep perfectly good materials from going into landfills and is made of metal scraps saved from one of Italy’s oldest metalwork companies, Metalmarc.

Clark met Metalmarc when he was invited to Italy to speak about sustainable design, and realized the impact that the tons of metal scraps that are discarded on a daily basis have on the Earth. Not ones to turn away a challenge, Clark and partner Branko Balic decided to utilize the company’s little cast off medallions to reinterpret the starry night as a fetching and eco-conscious light fixture.
