Taking recycled advertising banners as the project’s starting point; the designers Kay, Catherine and Match gave a unique three-dimensionality to the material by cutting and sewing them back together to create lamps masterpieces!
First there’s energy saving light bulb systems which are courtesy of Megaman. Then, there’s reused lamp stands which come from antique and junk stores from Cat Street in central Hong Kong.
The elegant part of using these banners is that they’re all printed only on one side and stitched with intentional holes throughout the shade to let escape the light. When the lamp is switched on, you create a colorful effect!
