A fan isn’t a particularly useful object once it stops working, but Belgian product designer Sep Verboom came up with a clever way to reuse old fans, upcycling them into attractive lamps. Verboom partnered with Nida Cabrera, frm social environmentalist from Cebu City, Philippines, to form Fantasized, a company that produces both pendant lamps and floor lamps from fans that were purchased from local junkshops. Cebu is well known for its indigenous material weaving industry, and all of the lamps feature colorful woven material produced by local craftsmen. The lamps are currently for sale on the Fantasized online store.
