Interdisciplinary design practice Studio Swine lead by Azusa Murakami and Alexander Groves presents “Stand Light“, a floor lamp made from recycled plastic bottles. The bottle bulbs are a lighting pieces made from beverage bottles that have been heated and re-blown into a eclectic collection of organic forms without the conventional recycling process where the glass is broken down into cullet first.
This results in a clearer higher quality glass requiring less energy and retaining some mark of the previous industrially manufactured form. The bulbs are fitted with customised brass fittings and LEDs.
