A while ago I announced the ready-made-design competition organised by online shop Das Rote Paket. The assignment was to create and build a ‘ready made light’ from prefabricated parts. Sonja from Das Rote Paket: ‘From all over the world clever people sent us their ready-made-lights. All together nearly 50 fantastic ready-mades…People had amazing ideas and used really all kind of materials!’. Above you can see two of the winning designs.
The first prize (top images) went to Bernhard Elsässer from Germany with his striking pendant “LE MAL 6” simply made out of a 6-way-socket strip and bulbs. The pendant is very plain, shapely, easy to build and reminds us to a modern chandelier. Below you can see 3rd prize winner Pendant “SHANDALIR designed by Nir Meiri from Israel. Her lamp is made out of recycled materials from the plant nursery industry. Black plant cups, water pipes and droppers were used for this beautiful florale pendant. A thank you to Das Rote Paket for oganising such a great design competition!
