Gilles Eichenbaum is a very talented craftsman, we literally fell in love with his work. He transforms old, banal objects, from kettles to scales and toasters, into beautiful lamp shades by performing patterns and assembling other random objects to it.
It all started when he was travelling, and started building lamps with what was at hand, hence the use of everyday objects. Following the success of his work on flea markets, he decided to turn the hobby into a business, and voila!
Each piece is obviously unique, and it’s all recycling making his work even more special! He named it Garbage: Your bins got talent! Each object are already quite beautiful and charming in themselves, as when we talk kettles and toasters, we mean antiques rather than modern.
All this stuff cluttering your basement can be used again, another round… Today the memories they evoke shall pinch you. Or their revival makes you laugh and it’s just a lot.
Our favourite is the Le Creuzet perforated dish.
You can check out more of his work on his website.
