Loto is a series of lamps made from discarded detergent bottles inspired by the organic shape of lotus flowers. El Salvador born designer Eugenio Menjivar noticed that the beautiful lotus flower typically thrives in muddy swamps and wanted to create a precious object out of plastic debris. He hopes people appreciate the sustainable design of the Loto lamps and also realize that beauty can come from the reuse of materials normally treated as trash.
