Cassette Tapes Reborn as a Clever Box Lamp by

Vanessa Moreno of ooomydesign created a tribute to the Eighties with her series of Cassette Tape Lamps. She took advantage of the cassette's structural properties, simply tying the tapes firmly together to create a box lamp. The lamp dims the light in a soft, delicate way, and you can personalize it by switching the tapes for your own. Cassettes are being thrown away by the hundreds as iPods and other mp3 players take over; this is a unique way to save them and the environment by creating a range of products that give cassettes new life and new meaning.

    Cassettes are still a viable way to listen to music. Many independent labels are producing them again. This is a pretty cool looking lamp and a great idea for old tapes, but to say “cassettes are being thrown away by the hundreds as iPods and other mp3 players take over” is a gross overstatement and generalization, and does not reflect that many people still (or have recently begun to) appreciate the qualities that tapes have that an mp3 player will never replace.

    Sometimes when you make something creative out of trash, it still looks like trash.

    Keep the ideas coming. I’ll pass on this one,though.
