Each day hundreds of thousands of disposable spoons [2] are used to stir coffee and then thrown in the trash and sent directly to the landfill. Seeing this, Studio Verissimo [3] designed a luxurious lamp to give the waste product a new purpose. Their elegant chandelier [2] is unbelievably made from an assortment of used plastic spoons. If you’re a fan of this fine recycled design then make sure to vote for it in our Bright Ideas Lighting Design Competition [2] – polls close tonight at midnight!
