Design

The TetraBox, created by designer Ed Chew, is a light shade made from discarded drink packets. The shades are constructed by folding the drink packets into hexagonal or pentagonal sections, which are then pieced together into the desired shape.

The light within the TetraBox beams out from the geometric holes to cast fascinating shadows on the surrounding room. Not only is the design aesthetically pleasing, but it answers the need for sustainability by repurposing material that would have otherwise ended up in a landfill.
