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.
