Pet Lamp Project

The Spanish designer Alvaro Catalán de Ocon from 2011 participates in the collective project Pet Lamp, providing a creative answer to the problem of pollution from plastic.His involvement in the project starts with a trip to Colombia for which he makes pollution impact caused by the plastic, particularly in tropical areas, where heavy rains convey containers and bottles scattered in rivers and through them in the oceans, creating an enormous accumulation of debris, called the Seventh Continent . Starting from the idea of re-use PET bottles destined for landfill, the project involved groups of craftsmen of the Colombian region of Cauca displaced by the guerrillas, to turn throwaway items into something beautiful and durable. Applying the ancient textile tradition to the recycling of PET bottles artisans have created unique lamps, colorful and functional, worked and decorated following the local culture.

The affected populations are those of the Eperara-Siapidara, skilled in ‘plot and dyeing of palm fibers, and Guambianos of the Andean highlands, whose textile tradition in wool and cotton is very ancient.

The colorful Pet Lamp  at Listofledlights were presented at Spazio Rossana Orlandi in Milan Design Week 2013, and Alvaro Catalán de Ocón conducted a workshop on the lamp manufacturing steps during the last festival Operae Turin .

You can buy individual lamps or groups for large installations. Each one is a unique piece and you can choose the combination of colors and shapes.
