Recycling Old Plane Windows for Contemporary Lighting Design
Reuse and recycle is a hot topic. The idea for recycling old plane windows and creating contemporary lighting fixture came from French designer Paul Coudamy. His F-Light is a unique ceiling light design made of discarded Airbus windows. Lushome presents this unique lighting design, the huge plane panel which looks amazing with lights.
This unique lighting fixture creates intriguing circles of light and made of a large structural piece. The old plane panels combined with lights can be transformed into unique lighting fixtures that provide great inspirations for recycling. Contemporary ceiling light diffuses the light on the whole surface, producing a wonderful lighting effect.
The contemporary ceiling light integrated into the panel diffuses the light on the whole surface, producing an attractive glow and changing a mood in a room. A second indirect lighting set on the structure is reflected by the original isolating silvery material and enhances the lighting effect. The feeling of levitation of F-Light and creative design turn the panel hanging from the ceiling into an impressive chandelier, perfect for Green and contemporary interior decorating.
Recycling for contemporary lighting
After having spent 20 years flying at 1000 km/h 10 km high above the ground, at the end of their life-cycle old planes were left rusting at the far end of airport runways.
The marvels of engineering with their ultra functional curves resulting from uncompromising technical research are diverted from their original function in order to be integrated into our daily lives. Creative recycling ideas and smart design solutions offer old plane pieces a second life.
The F-Light project is a diversion of the inner walls and windows of an Airbus 300. Its curves, windows, and silvery isolation material are recycled in an innovative and attractive way. The lighting design project demonstrates a wonderful opportunity to transform useless structural pieces and recycling them into unusual, functional and modern lighting fixtures.
The panels are fitted together to create a luminous ceiling light forming a shell in levitation. This dome delineates the space and offers a special intimacy beneath it adding strong character to the interior design. The system of panels and lights can be adjusted and offers unlimited variations for every room size. The panels can be put together in a row to suit the desired dimension.
