CAN.LIGHT / Lighting


CAN•LIGHT•SPINE is made only from standard size recycled aluminum soda cans with a thin metal frame as the structure. Because of the concave surface of polished soda can, the light reflection is fully utilized, although only one LED light is used. Soda cans are indeed sophisticated industrial products.The most interesting part is the base-a perfect-circled form with thickened material for protection.

Our design is not only an eco-design, but also a sustainable “Upcycling” campaign with social responsibility. We cooperate with local restaurants for supplying used soda cans and will be further processed by local sheltered workshops.
