Lamps made from upcycled books by Bom Design

Pegasus is one of many fantastic creations by Michael Bom, a Dutch artist who makes sculptures and upcycled lights from books. The page leaves are folded in a way that gives the lamps an appealing translucency and a wonderful feathered and organic appearance.  His design studio Bom Design with Antoinet Deurloo specialises in products handmade from reused materials which can be bought at their online shop here
