Californian designer Roxy Russell hopes her Medusae collection of lamps literally illuminates the problem of plastic pollution in oceans and seas. It’s a noble desire — though it’s one she acknowledges as being ironic since the glowing lamps are also made of plastic. However, as she puts it: ‘… the PET is (not) an evil material, it is the way we use it’. Plastic or not, these wispy jellyfish lamps are beautiful.
