Swedish design collective Oddbirds has produced a beautiful range of interior objects, accessories and textiles by creatively combining old, new and recycled materials. This series of unique lamps is made from lost and found, rediscovered, and inherited tableware. Each lamp is made of pieces from various coffee and tea sets, and the designers are not shy of combining the chunky and rustic with the delicate and dear, which may be the secret to their success.

The designers describe themselves as free-spirited and spontaneous, powered by the joy of creating. Without second thoughts they transform items like period furniture, grandma’s old curtains or your favourite jeans into colorful new furnishings or accessories. One of their main goals is to inspire their users to engage and discover new value in old things.

Their tableware lamps all have girl’s names reminiscent of an older era like: Desiree Den Lilla (the little), Kristina Petit and Sibylla. Each lamp is numbered to show the handcrafted nature and uniqueness of each piece, and they come with a textile-wrapped wire and are CE marked.
