Another Formex find that captured my attention were these lamps that premiered as a collaboration between the Design Stories studio and Returhuset in Göteborg. The aim of the collaboration is to create beautiful new products from the industrial waste of local businesses.
For instance, the fabric in the Drawstring Lamps that I like so much was originally made to screen and filter sunlight. That's why it works so beautifully for lighting. Clever ladies. I'm equally smitten with the cords they designed to go with the lamps.
