Eric Lawrence crafted a chandelier from the molded Styrofoam packing material Apple used to use for shipping laptops. What once cradled MacBooks now lights up with 16 bulbs (5W  compact fluorescents) that generate  little heat but produce the same light as 20W incandescents.


His creation, called Styrolight, won the Sustainable prize in Design Within Reach Austin’s M+D+F competition.

Wonder if I’d hoarded the packaging over the years whether I’d have enough to do something with  it…
