Very cool! Upcycled and found objects find a second life as designer lamps via @alternativeconsumer

Lamp maker Jonas B. creates his unique lighting fixtures from the found objects and discarded items he uncovers in his native Montreal. The designer’s Le Lampiste line of handmade lamps is constructed from an eclectic array of raw materials that includes: upcycled old hand irons, colanders, strainers, film canisters, springs, milkshake makers and any other useful junk that strikes his design fancy. All the lamps’ wiring and electrical components are new and fully functional. Checkout the LeLampiste Etsy shop , or Jonas B.’s Facebook page for more info and other items.
