Cool Sphere Lamp is Made From Old Drink Packets

In response to his country’s love of disposable drink packets, Malaysian designer Ed Chew thought of a way to turn those spent soft drink containers into artful lamps. By folding the durable material into triangular tubes, and then fitting those tubes into pentagonal and hexagonal clusters, any number of geodesic shapes can be created. Amazingly, Chew’s explanation of the lamp’s construction seem to indicate that the shapes hold themselves together without any adhesive.

Read on after the break for more images of these impressive, and eco-conscious, creations.
