Reinventing the Cassette Tape

Cassette tapes, born in the 1980s, are known to have poor sound quality and have become an animal of the past, but similar to the Transparent House lamps we noticed last year, ooomydesign has managed to rescue old cassette tapes to create a series of gorgeous glowing lamps.

Ooomydesign’s cassette tape lamps are intricately linked together using plastic ties. Some lamps are crafted an x-ray view effect in the lamps made from clear tapes, and others feature a kaleidoscope of light shining against a wall from a set of wheel holes. They can be purchased from the ooomydesign online shop, but designer Vanesa Moreno is also open to commissioned lamp projects from your personal collection of tapes. Moreno’s vision is to collect enough cassette tapes to create a set of cassette chairs, tables, and other furniture reborn into retro reality. She is accepting donations through her website.
