Tarp Reborn / Lamp

Tarp Reborn
Tarp Reborn

In various countries, outdoor advertisements are printed on tarp. However, once the valid period is over, the tarp turns into non-recyclable trash becoming waste and environmental problems. The design highlights the trait of advertisement tarp—one side printed; one side white. When turned off, the exterior is completely white. When turned on, the original advertisement pattern appears, creating a surprising visual effect. Different printed advertisements make each tarp special. Best of all, the whole production procedure requires no chemical processing. Tarp Reborn not only solves the problem of discarded tarp but also creates unique lamps.
