Lustables: CAPtivate

Finally, a lamp for obsessive bottle cap collectors.

I’ve lusted after Lula Dot’s creations before, so it should come as no surprise that I’m crushing so majorly on the CAPtivate. Designer Lucy Norman took into consideration that only 5.5% of plastic bottles sold in the UK are recycled. Bottle caps, meanwhile, are generally not recycled at all because they are made from an altogether different plastic from the bottles themselves.

Lucy designed the CAPtivate to illuminate this waste, both figuratively and literally, by turning tossed out bottle caps into something a bit more ambient. Each light comes with 50 caps; to cover the light completely, however, it requires some reuse by you. Consider it an opportunity to channel your inner Edison – or your essential Tesla – while greening up a patch of landfill.

The CAPtivate retails internationally for £128.00, approximately $206 in the United States.
