buckminster fuller tribute light- the geodesic campaign pendant, by andrew thomson
item: buckminster fuller tribute light
designer: andrew thomson
photos via: andrew thomson blog
comments: how could i resist an homage to bucky fuller? this light is made from upcycled political signage printed on corrugated plastic. the material is cut into triangles and hot glued back together with plastic hinges. what a great way to reuse a material that does not biodegrade, is only used for a short period (election campaigning) and is free. andrew is an industrial designer in birmingham alabama. check out the link above to see his blog. it is filled with some incredible projects he has designed. everything from silk screened posters, to furniture to light fixtures. can't say enough about his talent, you just have to check out his blog to see his work.
