DIY TetraBox Lamp

Designer Ed Chew shared a really cool idea how to turn discarded drink packets into a beautiful overhead lamp that casts an impressive web of shadows and shapes on the surrounding space. He starts by unfolding the packets and refolding them into hexagonal and pentagonal sections, then pieces them together forming a geodesic sphere or any other desired shape. The best part is that you can make such lamp at home!

In his own words:
“Packet drinks are one of the most favored soft drinks among Malaysians. We just love sipping packet drinks wherever we go and never actually bother about the thousands of boxes we discarded off after each quench, despite knowing the fact that landfills across our country are bursting at the seams.Perhaps, it’s about time we adopt a paradigm shift in our attitudes towards making this world a better place. As for me, here’s a little GREEN step I am taking to help reducing the amount of waste going to landfills.Introducing TetraBox Lamp. You will never look at empty packet drinks the same way again!”
