São Paulo Collection by Studio Swine

  • For those of us who are looking for desert-scapes that are friendlier than O’Keefe’s, or more tangible than Dalí’s, Studio Swine offers an easier home addition that reminds of the biome’s climate but is inarguably fit for the urban home. In the studio’s São Paulo Collection, discarded beer bottles are reheated and blown into lovely casings for lights, which are either hanging pieces, or aggregated as the arms of a wooden cactus lamp. In each bulb is a line of bright points, mimicking the patterning of inherent to many cactus varieties. The original bright green glass of the “upcycled” bottles lends itself nicely to a hodge-podge look, and the range of shapes and sizes mirrors the plant’s natural irregularities. Anyone can enjoy the reassuring glow of the collection’s lamps, which – mind you – have no prickly spines.
