Why are These Lamps Made from Recycled Bulbs So Expensive?

New, 2 comments

Recycling is a noble practice, particularly when it creates something as beautiful as the Recycled Tube Light Pendant from YLighting, which is made by arranging burnt-out florescent tubes in a cylinder around halogen bulbs. Given the common materials, one would think this innovative light would be available to the masses for relatively cheap, but no, it's been sequestered away in the realm of haute design, destined for a celebrity loft rather than adding some eco-friendly cool to the average home. Why's that? Well, the price, for the smallest, one-bulb version is $1,950, and the largest, five-bulb number costs $3,000. At least the shipping is included.
