Every year, we do a round up of eyeglass lamps-chandeliers. I know I have missed a few that were posted in some of the forums. This might be somewhat of a trend, not just the reuse part, but taking some of your vintage goods and creating shady sculptures. They are eye-catching, create a talk factor, unique and show a fantastic reuse story.
1.) This Sunglass Sculpture consists of 4000 oakley frogskin sunglasses chandelier in a store. Via Ispira Blog
2.) This sculpture/ lighting is huge and if you look in the background, there is another one. Wish I could give image credit.
3.) Another eyeglass lamp in an optometric office.
4.) Not a lamp, just a sculpture. It looks like you can do something similar with a tomato cage.
5.) Image credit unknown on this one. Again a lamp with a mixed use of both sun and Rx eyewear.
6.) ClearVision Optical version of the Eyewear lamp.
7.) Terracycle’s building in Mexico was in an old eyeglass factory.. what else.. reuse..
8.) This Chandelier was made with 541 Gotti Sunglasses to celebrate their 20th anniversary. I don’t know if these were old, but what a great way to reuse sunglasses and eyeglasses.
9.) Southern Tier Optometry version of the lens lamp.
10. This new edition seems to have welded frames togethers for this look
11.) Toms Eyewear Lens Window Display
