These are some beautiful lights that are made out of recycled Tetra Brik boxes – which are mostly discarded drink cartons. The cartons are cut into strips and two shapes are made that can fit together to create a light shade. No glue is needed.
The two shapes (a polygon and a hexagon) are just the basic building blocks. With the two shapes you can build a range of different lights: from a spherical lamp, to a drum light or floor lamp.Â You can find the steps that Ed Chew, a Malaysian designer, took at his website here.
