Up-cycling at the LDF2011
Two designers have teamed up to show the value of discarded materials by creating innovative lighting products
‘Enlightened Waste’ at the Marion Freidmann Gallery is showing the work of French-Mexican designer Thierry Jeannot and Austrian artist Gisela Stiegler who have each used a different packaging waste material to create light objects and sculptures.
Thierry Jeannot has created a chandelier using 1,500 PET bottles. He has also produced a jewellery collection using PET bottles as his base material.
Gisela Stiegler used waste polystyrene from fishmongers in Vienna to create sculptured lamps.
The exhibition features a selection of Jeannot and Stiegler’s designs, lit up and in use as fully-functional lights.
‘Enlightened Waste’ at the Marion Friedmann Gallery, 8 Egerton Garden Mews, London SW3 2EH.
Mon–Sun, 11am-6pm. Admission free. Until 25 September 2011.
