Mischer'traxler: Relumine

I've been waiting for someone to post some lovely big images of Relumine, a project by Vienna-based studio, mischer'traxler, and thankfully Design Boom came to the rescue. In the words of the lamps' creators, Katharina Mischer and Thomas Traxler...

Each 'Relumine' uses two, discarded lamps, which are disassembled, sanded, newly lacquered and adapted with newer technology, before they are connected by a glass tube which holds a fluorescent tube. By introducing a different mean of light source to the old lamps, their look and feel changes completely. They become one new unit, each with its own character. Together these two lamps need less energy than each one in its previous life.

A lovely response the problem of sustainable lighting.
