the lamp crystal

Share

design team APOKALYPS LABOTEK (or alt) have bridged chemistry and design to create a lamp made of salt. they are based in sweden and an important part of their studio is to address environmental issues through design.

they used a salt solution and a bucket to create this design – the salt crystallized and grew around the bucket.  the salt solution they use is waste extracted from a local chemistry factory and when you have no use for this object or it has reached the end of it’s life cycle – it can be composted – making it a truly environmentally friendly design.

the lamp was created in reaction to a prominent disease in china called silicosis that is common in the stonecutting industry.  it was designed to prove that are many other matierals available to make basic products.
