This bright idea by designers Annisa Fardan Nabila and Aulia Amanda Santoso minimizes waste by re-purposing incandescent light-bulbs into a gorgeous set of spice containers. The fragile nature of each light bulb provides a delicate modern container that is every bit as elegant as fine china. These beautiful pieces are more than just functional — they are sure to add personality to any kitchen. The RECYCLAMP SERIES is one of 23 finalists in our 2010 Spring Greening Competition, which challenged designers around the world to come up with innovative new uses for common household objects. If you think this design should be our grand prize winner, vote for it now!

    @carlos I did a little more research and there is some indication that tungsten (the filament element) has more negative health effects than previously believed.

    @ Carlos me hizo un poco más de investigación y hay algunos indicios de que el tungsteno (el elemento de incandescencia) tiene efectos más negativos de la salud que se creía.

    los bulbos son adecuados, unicamente estan hechos de vidrio y el elemento de iluminacion de metal, a diferencia de los tubos ahorradores que contienen rastros de mercurio y fosforo en su superficie interior.

    I am skeptical that a light bulb is food-safe or could be cleaned enough to serve in that capacity.

    Clever idea, but risky.
