Cutty Sark sustainable table lamp shines at Nottingham Light Night 2013

Cutty Sark sustainable table lamp

During the Nottingham Light Night 2013, MA Fine Art graduate Janet Wootton from the Nottingham Trent University presented the Cutty Sark table lamp, a sustainable lamp featuring a base made from a piece of recycled wood from the historic Cutty Sark ship. The Cutty Sark sustainable table lamp is an upshot of a collaborative project at Nottingham Trent University. Former Nottingham Trent University lecturer Paul Briggs provided the wooden piece from the historic ship.

Combining form, function and art with a green message, the sustainable lamp is made from copper, brass, wrought steel and the recycled wood. The light box has been made from eco-friendly bio resin with sustainable black bamboo (grown by Janet himself) and jute suspended within it. The lamp was designed in collaboration with Alan Crisp, principal lecturer in Product Design at Nottingham Trent University. Created in the shape of a ship by Alan, the Cutty Sark table lamp is lit with LED strips.

Janet said that this lamp connects history with sustainable materials, meticulous design and energy efficient lighting. Every year, Nottingham Light Night sees a variety of illuminations, projections and entertainment activities suitable for people of all ages.

    Great list man! These appliances are must have to every modern kitchen. One appliance I can suggest to the list are kitchen pop-up power outlets like this http://power-tower.com.au/product/powertower/ for charging or providing power outlets to kitchen appliances.

    Nice try, the original design from which this fixture is derived is from Toronto CASTOR DESIGNS. Your ripped off version doesn’t allow light to glow to the ends of the tubes.
