The California based Greenlight Concepts company creates retro-modern lighting fixtures using glass lenses recycled from discarded traffic lights.
Across the United States, giant truckloads of red, yellow, and green lenses are tossed into land-fills as cities upgrade to more efficient lighting technology. We’re reclaiming these glass artifacts to create “Stoplights,” our new line of lighting fixtures.
The recycled traffic lamps, is a prototype designed by a San Francisco based designer Daniel Krivens and colleague Nicholas Lee. The conventional lighting finds a replacement with the highly efficient LED technology killing the beast – the model taps into the waste stream (heaves of colored glass debris finding landfills across the U.S.) to give ‘Intimidating Red’, ‘Yielding Yellow’ and ‘Go Green’ an entirely novel definition.
The Greenlight Concepts traffic light lamps are priced from $90 up to $299.
