Concept

Through globalization and the constant expansion of opportunity via the Internet, people are on the move and their interest and allegiance in all things is short-lived. The concept word for the Trash Me lamp design is transient. Like our current global culture, it is a product that is ephemeral. The lamp is made of paper pulp spread over a mold and left to dry. Paper is in itself a transient material. A strong concept idea leads to an extraordinary form, and in this case it is a rebirth of what the designer sees as the beauty of the utilitarian forms. It is only fitting that the name is Trash Me, meaning "please recycle me when no longer useful or desired".
& the Trash Me lamp can be quickly dissembled and the parts reused or recycled back into the trash to be born again as something new.
