Ceiling lamp by the designer Mette Bak Andersen
In Denmark plastic waste is incinerated instead of being recycled. Merete Bak Andersen has an agreement with a refrigerator producer whereby she reuses their plastic waste for the production of lamps. Currently she is awaiting a new supply. As soon as the new supply arrives she will start producing new lamps and you will be able to buy the lamp in the Museum’s “TRASH! Shop”.
20% of the lamp’s price goes to the Danish Society for Nature Conservation’s annual waste campaign.
