Cassette Tape Lamp

By: on November 03, 2012

Landfills be damned! Today, we as a society advocate green living, composting, reusable grocery bags, and installing bike lanes on city streets (yet still bitching about gas prices). So what better to do with our 1,289 cassette tapes of Bon Jovi's Slippery When Wet and Guns 'N' Roses' Appetite for Destruction and Milli Vanilli's Girl You Know It's True than recycle them into a floor lamp? Street Market couldn't think of anything better, so that's exactly what they did. When lit, the full-length Cassette Tape Lamp glows in the buyer's choice of translucent, white, or prismatic rainbow, and I must say, looks gosh dang cool for yet another 80s retro installation. The X-ray effect of the light passing through the tapes gives the lamp a pretty rockin', yet almost eerie industrial vibe--like if Kafka wrote a novel about Whitesnake. And check out the shadows cast on the wall. Lights off, lamp on, instant transportation to mixtape Shangri-La.

Cassette tape floor lamp measurements are 47" x 7.9" x 7.9".

Cassette tape enthusiasts can also enjoy some nostalgia with the Mixtape Coffee Table and Retro Cassette Ribbon Necktie.
