What you'll do

We will learn to design a luminaire, in this case a lamp glassjar. You will leave with your lamp, it is included in the price of the Atelier. We will first see, in a general way, how to transform objects that we don't use anymore, into other objects with a different purpose and finally avoid throwing them away. If you are already in case that you do what to do with some objects at home, do not hesitate to ask me for advice during the course and take a picture before coming. We will then proceed to the design of the jar lamp. We will see all the components and accessories needed in order assemble it. We will see that with a single object, in this case a glass jar, we can easily create several lamps of completely different design. And we will finally do the assembly. This workshop will allow you later to be able to repair your lights yourself or to change the design.

Carine

As Lavoisier said, "nothing is lost, everything is transformed". I am the designer Patincoofin and I chose to work the design on already existing objects. Upcycling is the use of objects and materials to be thrown away to reintroduce them into the consumption chain, after having given them a value, a different use, an original destination compared to the original one. This recycling action is part of a broader desire for sustainable development.
