Here's a remodeling accent we consider, well... brilliant.
Old traffic signals shine when they're transformed into modern lamps by San Francisco-based designers Daniel Krivens and Nicholas Lee. Each lamp, available in red, green and yellow (of course), is a unique work of art.
The raw material is hardly in short supply since many cities are upgrading and replacing their red, green, and amber stoplight lenses with energy-efficient LED models. It's a brilliant use of materials that would otherwise end up in a landfill as the specialized glass is difficult to recycle.
Hint: We see these as the perfect design accent for a commercial conference room or home remodeling project like a kitchen or basement.
