American designer Victor Vetterlein‘s Trash Me lamps are made to be transient, but useful and Earth-friendly.

Each lamp is made from nothing but four egg cartons, water, and some aluminum screws.

Vetterlein used a cloth-covered electric cord, plus recyclable light fixtures for the lamp itself. As you can see, the design in the pics above has a hollow base; Vetterlein placed a paper bag filled with bird seeds in it to make it stable.

This is a lamp that’s relatively easy to make, assemble, and after a while disassembled and then recycled. Ashes to ashes, pulp to pulp. It’s a shame Vetterlein didn’t leave a how-to.
