In the ongoing quest to reduce, reuse, and recycle, one aspiring furniture designer is expressing her artistic talent in the form of furniture made from factory waste—and nothing else. No screws, bolts—just wood waste.
Amy Hunting, a London, UK-based designer and illustrator, has introduced The Patchwork Collection—lamps, chairs, and storage/book boxes made out of wood waste and off cuts produced in the Danish factories.
These lamps (pictured below, right) were cut out of a large solid block of wood, made up of small off cuts. The pendant lamps were then cut out of the block until 12 lamps revealed themselves and all the wood had been cut out. The 12 lamps can be stacked inside each other for easy transport. They require no fitting and can be hung on any bare lamp bulb through the top.
