Gallery: Shira Keret Designs Sweet Reyclable Lamps Shaped like Animals

 

Inflatable, recyclable, and super cute, Shira Keret‘s Animal Lamps are shaped like your favourite bird or mammal. Based in Tel Aviv, Keret creates sweet luminaires from Tyvek that emit a soft twinkling glow. Chickens, elephants, rabbits and even a rhino were carefully constructed from the non-woven white material, which was developed by Dupont back in 1955 and is frequently used for envelopes.

Keret’s animal lights look healthy and well fed. The secret behind it is a recycled PC fan that inflates them when litted and magically makes them look nicely round. A graduate from Bezalel Art and Design Academy in Jerusalem, Keret is part of Four’n'Five, a group of talented young designers that work from Tel Aviv’s Jaffa port.
