Have you ever laid eyes on a recycled product that you could actually call handsome? We think these are …
These handsome lamps are made from retired components from up to three different vintage motorcycles, constructed using a spring, shock absorber, brake rotor and transmission gear — all welded together to add a bit of quirky moto flair to any room.
“There’s no telling what adventures this lamp had in its previous life. But now it can live on as a gift for your favorite moto enthusiast — or yourself.”
To check out some of the bikes that inspired these lamps, explore Classified Moto.

A chic, ingenious way to recycle cardboard
Tau Speakers are made from recycled materials; almost entirely of corrugated cardboard. Andrej Cverha of HANGAR DESIGN FORGE stacked layers of corrugated paper for them to take organic shapes before smoothing them over with a white glaze and an epoxy finish. Each elegant transmitter is poised atop a set of sticks that encases unsightly cords, making Tau Speakers strike a graceful harmony in space, sound and nature. Ultimately, the Tau Speakers are a great addition to the plethora of eco-chic products released this year.
