We all know that salt is essential for cooking, but did you know that it can also be used to make home furnishings? We spotted these good-looking lamps at this year’s London Design Festival and were fascinated to find out that they’re actually made of everyone’s favorite savory substance from the sea. Designed by Roberto Tweraser, the lamps, called simply SALT, are a minimalist, and elegant option for kitchen lamps – just make sure you control your urges to break off some pieces and throw them in your dinner.
