Beautiful Recyclable Jellyfish Lamps by Roxy Russell Design

The Medusae Collection

Californian designer Roxy Russell created this series of jellyfish-inspired lighting, where part of the profits will be donated to the Ocean Conservancy.

Made out of recyclable and durable velum finish PET (polyethylene terephthalate) mylar, in addition to white powder-coated aluminum, Russell’s “Medusae” lamps come flat-packed and are designed to hang from the ceiling, allowing their delicate arms to float down, diffusing light softly. Txt Via

Roxy says ““The ocean is such a boundless source of inspiration for myself and many other people, in all fields. Unfortunately, I am also very concerned about the fragile state of it’s very complex eco-system.I wanted to bring to the surface, and illuminate the growing problem of plastic polluting our oceans in a way that makes people inspired to help. We have a floating island of plastic garbage in the Pacific that is twice the size of Texas. Up to 70 percent of this plastic is below the surface, broken down into tiny pieces,becoming a toxic part of the eco-system. Countless fish and birds die from mistaking these bits for food.”


As the saying goes, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” The talented artists, behind the works you’re about to see, view the world differently. They see incredible possibility in the junk we blindly throw away on a daily basis. Not only do they contribute art for us, but to the world itself. Thanks to the integration of recyclable items, their artwork actually spares items that would end up  in the landfill.

Concept alert! This cork recyclable battery designed as a top-off for your smart phone (choose from 2-hr, 4-hr, or 6-hr) is called the Mini Power.

It’s the work of designer Tsung Chih-Hsien, who picked up a 2014 Red Dot Award for his innovation. Sadly, it’s just a concept at this point, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see this on the market soon.
