Styro Light – Apple’s Packaging Put to A Second Use

Eric Lawrence won a Sustainable Award from Design Within Reach Austin’s M+D+F competition recently for the Styro Light – his fixture that was created using the styrofoam packaging corners from Apple laptops.  I think this is a well-exhibited design – the frame is aluminum, and there are 16 5W dimmable compact fluorescents illuminating the space.

Check out a few picures of this work – great job, Eric!
