Cholesterol lighting

ball_cesar_barton_cholester.jpg

Designed by Shoko Cesar, our own Greg Ball, and Darryl Barton, Cholesterol is a lamp made with reused clear plastic egg cartons. The designers explain; “North America’s rich and over-indulgent culture generates millions of tons of waste that flow into the landfill every year. Cholesterol lighting helps to block the flow of waste by adding beauty to our devalued waste products. By reusing material that is on its way to the landfill, Cholesterol adds aesthetic value to a disposable material and asks the user to reconsider: what materials are disposable, and what materials can be reused for their aesthetic value.”. Cholesterol is a project designed for the THAW 2006 show.
