Tile Lamp

The ‘Tile’ Lamp is the product of experimenting with upcycled materials. The aim of this project was to repurpose used and unwanted denim and design a product that could be conceivably manufactured. The experimentation led to creating a pulp from the denim and making a denim paper, and from this process came the study of light passing through different materials. The lamp became the vessel in which we created form and compositional studies, making variations in the relationship between light and shadow. Using tiles of denim paper which allowed light to pass through along with unchanged denim, we created two lamps that shared the same material properties but were each unique in their composition.
