The PET Lamp project came about in 2011 in response to the growing problem of plastic waste in oceans, particularly in the Colombian Amazon. The project tackled this by converting plas- tic bottles into ceiling lamps using the textile techniques of local craftspeople.
To date, PET Lamp has achieved a global dimension that includes craftsperson communities and ‘satellite’ collaborators on several continents. In addition to developing an attractive and con- temporary product, the project is infused with the creative DNA of the natives from each community and captures the identities and folklores of different corners of the world in each object.
The lamps stand out as a unique product, soaked in history and symbolism.
The project is endorsed by several international awards and nominations. The display windows of Zara Home shops will be the perfect setting to display PET Lamp Pikul individually, illus- trating its design and production process for the very first time.
