Things: Toylights

Ecuadorian designer Carlos Rivera created a series of desktop lights inspired by the urban arts, namely graffiti. Says Rivera, "This type of lighting began with the decomposition of graffiti which then led me to the form and the aesthetic of the project, and TOYlight." "The material I worked with was 100% recycled newspaper along with some binders that came to form a paste which could then be molded". TOYlights are entirely handmade so each design has slightly different finishes and textures.
