This LED chandelier by Yoon Bahk is made from recycled wine and champagne bottles. Rescued bottles were hand washed and polished. A unit from single bottle can be hung by itself. Yoon Bahk believes that green design should be an idea and not a look.

Eco-friendly chairs made from strawboard. (Strawboard, a formaldehyde-free material made of compressed straw- an alternative to wood particleboard or fiberboard)
Invisible Street Lights designed by Jongoh Lee are in the shape of tree leaves and can be wrapped around tree branches. During the day, these leaf structures mingle in the tree’s natural leaves, harnessing and storing sunlight. At night, they provide a poetic alternative to streetlights.

I see a lot of old beautiful bird cages in the garbage. I think I threw out a few as well a long long time ago. What I did not know is that they can be transformed into beautiful lamps. This re-purposed bird cage lamp above is by PSPCA ( Philadelphia Society of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals). The curtain will naturally diffuse the light acting as a lamp shade!
