Spotted at this year’s London Design Festival amidst a flurry of other hot new home furnishings, these colorful lamps by Orchard Studio have a stretchy surprise – they’re made with reclaimed rubber bands! One of the coolest parts of the enlightening design, besides the fact that it matches Orchard’s equally cheeky rubber band chairs, is that you can switch out the bands with your own, meaning you can change the color scheme to all blue, all red, all beige, etc. While the lamps shown here appear to be incandescents (very 2001), we really hope these are CFL compatible too.

    Rubber bands tend to oxidize and lose their resiliency. So expect to be vacuuming up rubber band bits under these lights after a year or two.
