STREETlights

Lamps made of old streetlights. Studio Van Doorn worked with designer, Esther Derkx, to design different varieties of traditional, spherical streetlights.

Studio Van Doorn worked with designer, Esther Derkx, to create four different spherical designs from discarded streetlights. In the Netherlands, old street lights have been replaced by LED models. The old lighting fixtures are generally scrapped. This inspired the designers to create sustainable interior lighting fixtures with these “downs and outs”. The streetlights are re-assembled, sanded or painted in a colour without removing the patina, which retains the link to the past. The history of the streetlight remains, and contributes to the new form.
