Designer Profile: Sungho Lee (Clothes Pegs and Paper Clip LED Lights)

Clothes Peg LED

Sungho Lee likes to take everyday items, like a paper clip or a clothes peg, and integrate LED lights into them. What is great about these make shift lights, is that they can be joined with other items/materials to create your own personalized lamp. Like in the photo below, the clothes pin LED light can hold together a roll or paper which turns it into a lamp. You could take things further and create some professionally made cards to act as place settings at a wedding – which these clothes pins will light up. (Sungo Lee)

The 35 Wine Bottle Chandelier

I highlighted recently the work of Natalie Sampson who uses coat hangers to make unique light fixtures. This time I have Kevin Sutton of Zuma Creations who designs light pieces using recycled wine bottles. Each light uses energy efficient LEDs and is made to order.

The iconic piece of Kevin Sutton’s collection is a 35 bottle chandelier which has a copper centerpiece that houses the 18 LED lights. There is also a 4 Bottle Chandelier: made with solid copper and brass plumbing. Pendant lights, wall sconces, flameless candles, table lamps are also available as seen in the photos below.
