Luxury Lighting Made from Recycled Glass Bottles

Studio Swine is a collaboration between Azusa Murakami and Alexander Groves focusing on design through material innovation. Inspired by the Brazilian tropical modernism of the 1950’s they have transformed scrap metal, wood and recycled beer bottles sourced from São Paulo, Brazil into a luxury design collection. The bottle bulbs have been heated and re-blown into eclectic organic forms without the conventional recycling process where the glass is broken down into cullet first. This results in a clearer higher quality glass requiring less energy and retaining some mark of the previous industrially manufactured form.
