With a budget of £30, the brief was to buy multiple items from a charity shop and up-cycle the pieces to create an object with an entirely new function. After scouring charity shops around Birmingham we chose four objects, a wooden chair, a wine rack, a vegetable rack and an espresso maker. After everyone presented their individual design ideas to the rest of the team, it was decided that Beau Birkett’s lamp design which utilised the vegetable rack and Bialetti Espresso Pot was to be produced. Over 2 weeks Beau Birkett and Helen Martin manufactured the finished piece utilising the facilities available to them within Birmingham such as Millennium Point and The School of Jewellery. The lamp is a play on how coffee is required for many people to function, the light allows the productive capability of coffee to spill onto the users desk, without the stained documents and fried laptops that come with the usual accidents.
