Sustainable living is one of the most highlighted and impressive things that is practiced in the modern age of Climate change and various environmental pollution. People have been working hard to create alternatives to remove harmful material in products that are being discarded as waste. Also, to remove the harmful waste that is already out there.
This modern-day issue calls for every country in the world to pay attention to this. As many people try to create their own solutions, Alvaro Catalán de Ocón who is a Spanish designer has come up with his own series of solutions. He has taken the initiative to produce ‘PET Lamps’ in 2011 which has been a great success and now, he is moving forward to create more products. Visiting many countries with his projects, he visited Australia’s Northern Territory to meet the Aboriginal weavers of Australia. Scroll down to read more about this amazing project.
The Aboriginal weavers are famous for their mats and other woven products made by pandanus fibers which are dried. Natural, pigments give these products their color. For his project, Ocón has collaborated with the Aboriginal community to create very artistic mats which are to be used as a panel of combined lampshades.
A lot of people have shown interest in his ‘PET bottle lamp’ project and also in this lampshade project which combines sustainable and traditional elements into creating one amazing piece of art. We have listed some pictures of the production of these lampshades. Check out these images and visit the websites for more information.
