Description

CAPtivate lamp is designed by Lucy Norman under the name of her company, Lula Dot, set up to upcycle London's waste into lasting beauty. The lamp was assembled by Watford Workshop, a registered charity that provides training and employment for people with learning disabilities, in 2007. The armitage to which the caps are screwed is made from damaged plastic PET bottle performs (injection moulded bottles before they are blow-moulded into their full shape) supplied by Artenius Packaging. The caps are donated from each home game played by West Ham United. The caps are removed from bottles sold in the stadium in order to prevent fans from using them as missiles. The lights are sold with 50 caps with the intention that buyers will personalise the light with caps that they collect.
