Salvaged pieces get a clever, modern twist in the home of eco designer Adrian Draigo
Take his Glow-ring light, for example. This is simply a collection of plastic milk bottle tops – in all their many colours – that have been strung together to form a repeating pattern – then threaded through with an LED light to give them a luminous other-worldy glow. There are two of these designs: the circular version (the Glow-ring), which is installed in Adrian’s home, and the Gloworm, which snakes its way through banisters, and is currently on tour with Lighten Up.
And what about the future? Well, what with the make do and mend ethos firmly back in favour, the environment being top on our ‘To Save’ list, and the world economy looking gloomy, it would help if Adrian could put together a weekend project book filled with ideas so we could all learn how to fit more pieces of the recycling puzzle back into place.
