Packaging Lights



Brilliant repurposing of otherwise, mundane items. Must make some of these immediately. Now where did I put that box of push pins? From Dutch Design Week:

"designer Anke Weiss has created a series of lights from used food and drink packaging. Weiss traces the patterns and text on the packaging with hundreds of pin-pricks, which allow the light to shine through."

  2. Leah - Agreed. I love 'em so much more with the lights off though.

  3. you could paint them white after pricking them, so you don't see the original graphic...
