We are quite used to learning about utilitarian products, put together by different people, from reclaimed resources. That’s why nowadays we think of making use of any material that seems reusable before simply discarding them.
If we tell you that the desk lamp you see above is actually edible, would you believe us? Well, believe it or not, it truly is. Designed by American designer, Victor Vetterlein, the Bite Me desk lamp is made from a biodegradable plastic derived from agar and vegetable glycerin.
We are in the habit of using tools and machines in almost every work we do. When machines wear out, replacing the old with shiny new ones becomes the objective.
