I saw these fantastic lamps by TOBYhouse earlier this week. The idea of taking everday objects and twisting the way we look at them is not a new trend – far from it. Taking an item and enlarging it, turning it into a fashion accessory or giving it another use was huge last year. I always wanted to post about it but it seemed so vast I didn’t really know where to start. I have just seen my FAVOURITE example of this trend, however and I just had to post about it. Toby Sanders has taken everyday inflatable toys and turned them into lighting pieces – they are fantastic! I saw them at the Interiors show at the NEC, these aren’t the best pictures – the banana lamp especially is not done justice so I’ll try and post some better ones if I find any:
