Design Academy of Eindhoven graduates Sander Wassink and Ma'ayan Pesach have created an exquisite series of hanging lamps by reappropriating unwanted glassware. Their brilliant Stacked Lights are made from vintage plates, bowls, cups and vases found in various markets in the Netherlands. LED lights shine through the stacks, casting colored shadows on nearby surfaces.
To make their glazed lights Sander Wassink and Ma’ayan Pesach started by collecting all kinds of glassware from markets and second-hand shops in and around Eindhoven. Once they had a good variety of pieces with different shapes, styles, details and qualities, they went about stacking them into sculptural found object lamps.
They soon realized that the lights where more interesting if they could ad some color to them. So they used pigmented resin to hold the stacks together while giving them a colorful tint. Elegant thin copper wires connect the glass shades to the lamp housings for an effect that is both unique and wonderful.
