Redefining trash as treasure, PET Lamp offers innovative, solutions-oriented light fixtures while empowering the artisans that expertly craft them. Initiated by Spanish designer Alvaro Catalán de Ocón in 2012, the project aims to repurpose landfill- and ocean-bound PET bottles by turning them into contemporary hand-made lampshades imbued with cultural significance. Each unique collection tells a story of partnership with traditional craft communities from around the world and addresses plastic pollution while keeping time-honored weaving techniques alive.

Whether you’re decorating a contemporary space or a more traditional interior, the Chimbarongo PET Lamp by ACdO will make any room feel more cozy, from the kitchen to the office. Created in partnership with traditional weavers in central Chile, each unique shade is masterfully crafted by hand from discarded plastic bottles that are shredded into strips and interwoven with locally sourced wicker fibers, giving the lamp its subtle coloring. The result is a standout fixture with a light and airy feel that comes alive when the light is on.
