This clever recycled Kalamata Spotlight [2] is a directional floor-based lamp with an industrial edge [3]. Created by Ori Ben-Zvi, the innovative design gives a 10-liter olive tin a second life by turning it into a fully functional lamp. The only materials Ben-Zvi used were the original tin, reclaimed oak floorboards [4] and aluminium signs. If you’re a fan of this awesome recycled lamp then cast your vote for it in the Bright Ideas Lighting Design Competition [2]!

The Kalamata Spotlight [2] is constructed from scrap wood sourced from local dumpsters – the designer even reduced transportation emissions by sourcing the wood close to the Ubico Studio [6], where he works. The spacious tin contains all of the lamp’s electrical wiring, enabling it to use eco-efficient LED bulbs of any shape or size.
